Transferring from an IFA or other local authority

If you already foster with an independent fostering agency (IFA) or another local authority and wish to transfer to Hampshire County Council then the process is a little easier.

One of our social workers will visit you at your home to explain the process

We will use your last Form F assessment and complete an ‘Update’ describing your fostering experiences to date (this process is much quicker than a new assessment)

If you have a child in placement we would hold a Contracts Meeting to ensure that the placement is not affected

You won’t be out of pocket if you decide to transfer. Our allowances and skills fees are very competitive.

Get in touch with us today to find out more about joining Hampshire.
