Transfer to Kent Fostering

If you're already a foster carer and interested in fostering with us, we'll make sure that your transfer is as quick and easy as possible. We always aim to complete your approval within 4 months of your application.

The benefits of fostering with us are:

  • the potential for payments of up to £58,578.52 per annum (based on one parent and child arrangement with an Advanced Level 3 foster carer)
  • payment for skills to recognise your fostering experience
  • better matching with children and young people and your family
  • family time and appointments will be more local to where you live (unlike other fostering services, we make a commitment to place Kent children in Kent homes, within 10 miles of their previous home)
  • you'll get supervision and support by experienced, skilled and compassionate fostering staff, who work locally to you and from the same offices as your children and young people's social workers
  • access to our ‘Placement Stability Team’ during challenging times, supported by a clinical psychologist
  • access to unique training, which includes our partnership with the Anna Freud Centre, to deliver the ‘Reflective Fostering Program’
  • opportunities to be part of new projects, where your ideas and contributions can impact directly on our children, young people and foster carers
  • opportunities to be part of a range of different fostering schemes including family support, emergency bed, parent and child and disabled children
