What happens if you are currently fostering children

Stability for the children in care is, of course, a highly important factor. There is a set fostering transfer which we follow as best practice. If you are currently fostering children at the time you transfer foster agency, a fostering transfer protocol meeting will be arranged. After the transfer protocol meeting, an agreement will be made for any children in your care to transfer with you. You will keep the same payment, expenses, and services for the whole placement, plus you'll get the extra benefits of being a Nexus foster carer. You can read more about the Fostering Transfer Protocol here.

Debbie’s story

"Debbie joined Nexus Fostering in 2011. She'd fostered with her local authority and even adopted her little boy. She had no foster children in placement when she transferred. Debbie knew Paul (a manager with Nexus Fostering) from when he worked at the local authority, so when Debbie found out he was moving to Nexus Fostering, she decided to find out more about transferring to the agency."
