How transferring works
Transferring to a new fostering agency means going through the same process you went through when you first became a foster carer. However, since you’re already fostering, your application will be fast-tracked and the process will be much faster and simpler.
FCA Scotland works with you, your current agency and the local authority to make sure everyone is working together and that any children or young people placed with you are also supported.
Why choose us?
When you foster with FCA Scotland, it’s not just you and the young person in your home. Think of us as an extended team, there for you, 24/7, whenever you need us, whatever your question. All our expertise is available to help you.
