Are You An Existing Foster Carer?

We are following Government advice on COVID -19 very carefully and not exposing either our staff, foster carers, young people who those looking to foster to any risk. As far as this crisis allows, it is still business as usual but with amended processes in line with social distancing.

At Unity Foster Carer we aim to stand out from other agencies. We are known for offering high levels of support and we make placements based on good matching. We value our carers and aim to make stable long term placements in which young people can grow and develop.

If you are thinking of transferring, it’s important for us to understand the reasons you wish to move. Our approach is honest and we’ll tell you if we think your situation won’t improve with us.

If you do transfer to Unity and are currently looking after young people, as a minimum we’ll honour your current support package and fees.

As an experienced carer you will have to undergo a new assessment, but this will be far easier and quicker than when you were first approved. We have and continue to have a good number of carers transfer to us. We can progress your transfer quickly and without disruption to any children in placement.

Transferring is a big step and we are more than happy to have an informal chat with you and discuss your current situation and explore the reasons you wish to transfer. If we do not think we can improve your situation we will say. We recognise this is a big decision for you, so feel free to call 0333 77 22 333 for an informal & confidential chat or enquire below.
