Already a foster carer, but want to join Plymouth?

We're always keen to hear from experienced foster carers. Maybe you are currently registered with another fostering agency and wish to move to our team in Plymouth or maybe you’ve just moved to the area and want to continue fostering.

Whatever your reasons for wanting to join us we would love to hear from you!

We must stress though you can only be registered with one agency at a time. We can visit you to discuss your wishes but if you decide to transfer to us then you must tell your current fostering agency in writing of your intention before we can begin your assessment process.

Don't worry if you're not sure how to do this, our team have all the letters and documents you will need and are here to help your through the entire process, so you'll never feel out of depth.

You would remain approved as a foster carer with your current agency throughout the process until you are successfully approved as a Foster Carer for Plymouth City Council.

Please contact us if you would like more details on transferring to Plymouth from a different adoption agency to Plymouth City Council.

"Being part of a multi-agency team is almost natural for us now and something that we respond well to. The support and advice that we have received from our supervising social worker has helped us realise that we have the confidence and experience to offer placements to children who have special needs. Julie and Pete, foster carers since 2004."
