Why transfer to Orange Grove?

If you feel undervalued or you're not getting the support you deserve, then a fresh start with Orange Grove may be the right next step for you!

Relationships are at the heart of everything we do – with our children, our foster parents, our professional team, and our local authority partners. 

The positive relationships we have with everyone involved in the child's care are what help us to achieve such incredible outcomes.

And with local offices supporting foster parents from Yorkshire down to the South Coast - all rated as ‘Outstanding’ or ‘Good’ by Ofsted - you’ll be in good hands.

Support at your fingertips

We're always by your side, helping you achieve extraordinary outcomes for children. As an Orange Grove foster parent, you'll have an entire team of support available to you, whenever you need it. This includes:

  • Dedicated social worker
  • Family support worker
  • Local team manager
  • Network of other child care professionals
  • 24/7 helpline
foster care training

Excellent training

We have plenty of high-quality training courses available to our foster parents, including specialist subjects like Autism and Supporting Children with Foetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Our friendly and supportive team is here for you, helping you go in the direction you want and develop the skills you need. It’s a personal approach and we give it the time it deserves - because that’s exactly what you deserve too.

We’ll match your current allowance at the very least 

When you transfer to Orange Grove, we’ll match your current fostering allowance at the very least. But often, we’re able to offer a higher fostering allowance.

In addition, we also offer other perks and benefits to support you financially, such as allowances for birthdays and religious festivals, and access to our rewards platform with hundreds of discounts to shops, restaurants and family adventures. You’ll also have two weeks of paid respite each year, giving you time to rest and re-charge.

Frequently asked questions

We’ve answered some of the most common questions around changing foster care agencies. Get in touch if you have a question that you’d like us to answer.  

Can I change fostering agency?

Absolutely! Just like any career, you’re not locked into one single organisation. If you feel undervalued or unsupported, then a fresh start at a different fostering agency may be your best next step. You’ll need to go through the assessment process again, but this can be pretty straightforward and often much simpler than the first time around. 

How do I transfer to your agency?

If you're thinking about transferring, the first step is to give us a call on 0800 3698513 or you can submit an online form and one of our experienced team will give you a call back.

We'll need to know if you have children in your care currently or not as the process is a little different in both cases but the team will talk you through this.

More Infomation

How long is the process for transferring?

From the outset, we try to make the move as smooth and stress-free as possible for you and any children in your care. We aim to complete your assessment within 12 weeks if you're transferring from another fostering agency or local authority and are on hand to support you every step of the way.

Do I have to complete a new Form F assessment?

Yes, the Form F is not transferable and your current Form F belongs to the agency you currently foster for. However, the Form F process can be quicker as you have been through it before.

Generous refer-a-friend scheme

When you join our team, you’ll have access to our exclusive refer-a-friend scheme where you could receive up to £3,000 for every foster family that you successfully recommend.
