At Agency Transfers, we understand that many foster carers start their fostering journey with their local authority. While local authorities can provide a valuable service, we also know that there are many reasons why you might want to consider moving away from fostering with the local authority and working with an independent fostering agency instead.
One of the main advantages of working with an independent fostering agency is the level of support and training that is available to you.
Unlike local authorities, who are often stretched for resources, independent fostering agencies can provide you with a dedicated team of support workers and access to training courses and other resources to help you provide the best possible care for your foster children
Another advantage of working with an independent fostering agency is the flexibility that it offers. With an independent agency, you have more control over the type of fostering that you do, the age range of children that you care for, and the level of support that you receive. This means that you can tailor your fostering experience to suit your own personal circumstances and preferences.
Finally, many independent fostering agencies also offer a higher level of financial support to their foster carers than local authorities do. This can include higher rates of pay, allowances for travel and other expenses, and bonuses for exceptional performance.
So if you’re currently fostering with the local authority and are looking to take your fostering career to the next level, we encourage you to consider working with an independent fostering agency like Agency Transfers. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable fostering specialists are here to guide you through every step of the process, and we’re committed to helping you achieve your fostering goals.
