Foster care – fostering children as a foster carer / parent

Transfer to Central Bedfordshire from another authority or agency

Central Bedfordshire Council’s fostering service is a non profit organisation that has a dynamic fostering community looking after local children and young people.

If you live in or around Central Bedfordshire, your local authority is a great place to foster as everything you need is right on your doorstep and we all work together with the best interests of the child at the heart of everything we do.

If you are already fostering you have the right to move to an alternative fostering service.

Why transfer to Central Bedfordshire Council?

As a local authority, our priority is to always place our children with our own carers. If you transfer to Central Bedfordshire you are unlikely to ever have a vacancy unless it’s your choice

As a Central Bedfordshire foster carer we will know your strengths and will have extensive knowledge about the children which means we can better match our children with our foster carers

Our allowances and fees are very generous, we will match what ever fees and allowances you currently receive for any child you already care for and you may even find that you are better off financially fostering for Central Bedfordshire Council
