transfer to nexus fostering

fostering is in our DNA

Sometimes, we all need a change.

Whatever your reason might be, as a Foster Carer you have the right to change fostering agency.

Transferring to a fostering agency like Nexus Fostering South West could be right for you if:

  • You are an approved Foster Carer
  • You are already registered with a fostering provider
  • You are looking for more support and a better service
  • You are based in the South West of England


we're here to help you

If you’re thinking about switching fostering agency from another independent fostering agency or a local authority, we can help. We understand it can be a time where you have many questions and need reassurance and that there are many reasons for wanting to transfer.

Transition to Nexus Fostering South West couldn’t be easier! Learn about how to seamlessly switch foster care agencies today…


At Nexus Fostering, we follow The Fostering Network’s Transfer Protocol (2012) which:

“recognises the principles of child care legislation and seeks to ensure that safeguarding the welfare of children is at the core of fostering policy and practice.”

We would be delighted to confidentially discuss a transfer to one of our local Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated teams where “Staff and foster carers are inspired to embody and implement the best social care practice in their work.” (Ofsted, 2011).

we’ve been officially outstanding on 3 consecutive occasions!

The complex needs of children and young people are well understood by the foster carers and agency staff, who plan effectively to significantly reduce the risks.

more on our rating

We are current Foster Carers with Nexus Fostering. The staff are friendly, supportive and happy to share their knowledge with us. I have given them 5 stars, as I have never, in my 53 years, worked for any company, that I found to be more supportive.

Foster Carer, Richard


financial stability for your placement

A competitive allowance is rewarded to you as a Foster Carer for your valued work, and to ensure the upkeep of children placed into your care. We also offer extra payments for festivities, birthdays and holidays and the option to join our pension scheme!

Transferring with a child

get that family feel

no complications

We understand that, when changing fostering agency, your first consideration will be stability for the children or young people in your care.

In most cases, following a protocol meeting, an agreement can be reached for any children in placement with you to transfer to Nexus Fostering South West with you, and we will maintain the current terms of the placement. This means you will continue to receive the same level of payment, expenses and services to support the child for the duration of the placement.

lorraine's story

We transferred to Nexus for nearly 2 years now and we can not praise Nexus enough, the support, training, help & advice or just a shoulder to cry on in times of need is second to none.

We have a great team of friendly carers too & we all like to support each other, none of this has changed throughout this pandemic, we are all there for each other more than ever, the staff are on hand 24/7 however big or small your query is, it’s never too much for them, from top management all the way to Admin, we are just one big family.

Would recommend this agency to anyone, you won’t find better!
