You deserve the best
Are you looking to transfer from your current fostering agency or local authority?
Joining the PICS family is a lot easier than you may think, you will receive comprehensive support and guidance every step of the way.
We understand that changing foster providers is a big decision, which is why we make the process as streamlined and hassle-free as possible. As one of the UK’s leading group of independent fostering agencies, we use our collective knowledge and experience to guide you through the process whilst ensuring all parties are fully supported.
If you’re thinking about transferring to the PICS family simply get in touch and we will arrange an informal chat with you either in one of our local offices or in the comfort of your own home.
Throughout the transfer process, we will work closely with you and your family, your existing agency and the local authority to make sure everyone understands what will happen and that any children or young people placed with you are fully supported too.
To ensure all transfers are fair and safe, we follow the Transfer of Foster Carers Protocol 2014 set by The Fostering Network. To view a copy of the protocol, click here.
Why Choose PICS?
From our friendly local offices to our 24/7 helpline, you’ll never feel on your own with PICS. All of our agencies make sure you’re linked in to a local network, plus you’ll be connected to other foster carers who can offer you and your family emotional and practical support.
As specialists in fostering we have the resources, time and expertise to make sure you get bespoke training that suits you. All our training is practical, accessible and down to earth. It does not involve any formal academic study or written exams.
We have excellent relationships with local authorities meaning we will always be in a good place to offer you placements, as and when you want them.
