New fast-track transfer process for existing foster carers

Merton has recently confirmed its new fast track process for existing foster carers wishing to transfer to the London Borough of Merton.

"We are receiving a number of enquiries from foster carers who are already fostering with another local authority or an independent fostering agency wishing to transfer to Merton.  To make the process as smooth as possible, we have created a fast track process where we will aim to complete your assessment in under 3 months." Chloe Gardner, Fostering Recruitment & Publicity Officer.

Foster carers may be frustrated at not having a placement or may feel they are undervalued or not supported enough in their current fostering agency.  Merton's new process helps to support existing foster carers in the transfer process by introducing workshops specifically for existing foster carers as well as supplying specific refresher training courses.
