Transfer To Us

Transfer to ealing from another fostering agency or local authority

If you are already a foster carer and thinking about changing agencies, we will try and make the transition as smooth as possible for you and fast track your application.

As a local authority we have the children who need fostering placements and would prefer to place our children with our own carers. This means that you are likely to have a wider choice of placements.

Everything we do happens in Ealing – training, support groups and contact with children’s families, school runs. As an Ealing carer you would only have Ealing’s children placed with you so would only need to work with one local authority.

In Ealing we believe in supporting our carer’s professional development. Carers receive excellent support and have access to an extensive and exciting training programme. Read more about our foster carer training and support.

We have extensive back up services with access to psychology advice and support and have an award winning education centre to support our looked after children.

In Ealing our services are set up so that we all work together, without the traditional divisions that are often in place. The children’s social workers, the fostering social workers and our psychologists all work in the same teams, providing a joined up service, so we can work in the Ealing way – One team around the child, all there to support you.

We pay competitive rates for fostering as well as paying retainers, holiday and birthday allowances and providing all carers with free membership to The Fostering Network.

As an experienced carer you might like to consider taking your fostering on to another level and becoming a specialist carer, able to take on children who has experienced significant harm or trauma. As well as an extensive support package carers also benefit from an enhanced allowance.

Work with Ealing and help change the future
