Transferring from an IFA

Transferring is really helpful and easy and this
means changing lives for the better

The first step is that one of our social workers will visit you at your home to explain the process. The process afterwards will vary on a case by case basis according to your individual circumstances, but we will work with you to ensure that the process is quicker than a new assessment. 


If you have a child in placement already, we would hold a Contracts Meeting to ensure continuity of any existing placement.

Case Studies

Many people are deterred from fostering as they think that only very particular kinds of people can foster but this simply isn’t true. What we are looking for in BCP from our foster carers is somebody who has the right qualities to give children and young people the secure, caring environment they need.

Who needs fostering?

Just like our foster carers, our children are all ages and from all backgrounds.  Around two-fifths of children in care are aged 11 to 15 years.  Finding foster carers for teenagers is a key priority for us at BCP Council.

Be a part of our fostering community

Our carers never feel unsupported and have identified that one of the most important aspects to them is a sense of a ‘fostering community’ with a team of experienced professionals and a foster care buddy scheme. If you would like to know more – please call us on 01202 123 345 or fill in our online form.
