However, if you believe it is the right decision for you, we would welcome the opportunity to provide advice and guidance as to the process of transfer and discuss the opportunities we would make available to you and your family. If you decide to transfer, you can be assured that we will advise and guide you throughout the process, ensure a positive experience and facilitate a smooth transition in line with the Fostering Network Transfer Protocol.

First easy steps to transfer

When you have made your decision as foster carer to transfer to join the Evolve Family, you’ll need to inform your current agency of your intent at the right time. We can support you with this and provide a template document.

Check and review of files

With your consent, evolve will look through your fostering files held by your current agency or local authority. This gives information about your fostering career to date and allows us to check there is no reason why you should be unable to continue.

The formalities of transferring

As your assessment progresses, we will organise a protocol meeting with everyone who is involved with the child or young person in your care. The meeting is usually led by the placing authority. That way, those you are fostering can be protected and the authority will assure their welfare can be looked after in the same way.
