If you are an existing foster carer currently registered to another fostering agency you can transfer to Caldecott Fostering Service.

If you are an existing foster carer currently approved by another fostering agency you will still need to be assessed by Caldecott Fostering Service and the assessment will be presented to a Caldecott Fostering Service fostering panel before being able to be approved for any placements.
Firstly, it’s important to clarify whether or not you currently have a child or young person in a placement with you.
You are simply required to give 28 days notice in writing to your existing fostering agency, Local Authority, or Trust, informing them of your resignation from that agency. Please note that Caldecott Fostering Service will contact your existing agency who you are registered with once you have handed in your notice and made a formal application to Caldecott Fostering Service to request a reference.
Caldecott Fostering Service places the needs and best interests of the looked after child or young person firmly at the heart of our policies. We therefore encourage and support the best models of practice for transferring between fostering agencies that will be outlined and governed by your current Local Authority, Trust or Independent Agency, and any applicable industry-wide protocol.
Please contact Caldecott Fostering Service for further information and advice about transferring to become a Caldecott Fostering Service foster carer. You can find out more by telephoning 0300 303 8794 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
