If you’re thinking about transferring from another independent fostering agency or a local authority, we can help. We understand it can be a time where you have many questions and need reassurance and that there are many reasons for wanting to move.

Transition to Nexus Fostering couldn’t be easier! Learn about how to seamlessly switch foster care agencies today…

We understand that your first consideration will be stability for the children or young people in your care.

In most cases, following a protocol meeting, an agreement can be reached for any children in placement with you to transfer with you, and we will maintain the current terms of the placement. This means you will continue to receive the same level of payment, expenses and services to support the child for the duration of the placement.

If you do not have children in placement, then the process is more straightforward.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a Foster Carer and joining the Nexus Fostering family, simply complete the form below, and we’ll be in touch.

debbie's story

Debbie joined Nexus in 2011. She’d fostered with her local authority and even adopted her little boy whilst there. There were no foster children in placement when she transferred.

Debbie knew Paul (a Nexus manager) when he worked at the local authority himself, so when Debbie found out he was moving to Nexus, she decided to find out more about transferring to the agency.

Debbie transferred to Nexus and has never been happier: “It’s the best thing I ever did. Friends still fostering with the local authority tell me how lucky I am. Fostering with Nexus is easy and stress-free. Some of my friends have transferred to Nexus with me!”

Debbie now has a sibling group of three girls in long term placement, plus her adopted son and her 3 birth children. Since 2001, Debbie has fostered 150 children and has photos of all of them on her walls at home.
