    what is the benefit of transferring between agencies – would it not be easier to resign and then apply to another agency if we have no children in place?



    Foster Carers change agencies for many reasons but I would recommend looking at the transfer protocol information on this website as it is now a lot easier to transfer and agencies should work together to enable this to happen smoothly. There are details about how this works if there are children in p[lacement or where there are no children placed:


    not all LA and agencies seem to be aware of this – one LA told carer recently they could not transfer as it was to an IFA rather than anther LA ?
