If you’re looking for a change in agency and an excellent support service, come and join the Wirral fostering team.

Foster carers have the right to freedom of movement between fostering services. It doesn’t matter if you already have a child placed with you. Our current foster carers tell us that our support scheme is excellent and they love being part of our team, it is one big foster family. Take a look at the support for foster carers page for more information.

We recognise that the welfare of any child in placement is paramount and we would ensure that we understand their needs prior to the transfer. We would aim to minimise the length of time taken in the transfer process and will work with you and your agency to make this as easy as possible.

We will be happy to discuss this process with you in more detail, or we can arrange for you to chat to one of our existing foster carers, call 0151 666 4510.

You are free to choose which agency you register with, but you can only be registered with one agency at a time.
