Are you a foster carer and thinking about transferring?

Here at Alpha Plus we understand that sometimes foster carers may want to consider transferring to a different provider for a multitude of reasons. We recognise that this is a big decision to make and something that you will need to consider carefully. You may wish to move because you feel you are not getting the support or training you require. You may also wish to consider transferring because you have not had a placement for a significant period of time.

We are particularly keen to hear from experienced carers who may wish to consider transferring to Alpha Plus and are very happy to have an informal chat with you so that you are able to explore your options. Judged by Ofsted to be outstanding for three inspections and as a Tier 1 provider we are very proud of the excellent child centred service we provide to children, carers and the Local Authorities. We are well respected and have an excellent reputation throughout the North West and are always keen to recruit carers who have experience in working with large sibling groups, children with complex emotional or health needs, parent and child placements and teens to meet the continual requests for placements that we receive from Local Authorities.

If you have a child in placement and are considering a transfer our main consideration will be if this is something in the child’s interest. Careful thought is always given to how a transfer will impact upon the child you have in placement.

There is a protocol for the movement of carers between agencies and Alpha Plus abide by the principles of the protocol. Please see this link to view the protocol.

If you are in the early stages of considering a move to another provider or have made up your mind call us on 0161 684 2323 to find out what Alpha Plus can offer you as a professional carer.
