Transfer to us

Are you thinking about transferring to Barnet from an IFA (Independent Fostering Agency) or returning to fostering after a break?  There are many benefits to joining our Barnet family, from the excellent support we provide to the generous financial package we offer our foster carers.

When a Barnet child needs a local home, we give priority to our in house Barnet carers. Our foster carers are contacted about a range of possible children and we provide you with as much information as possible to help you make a decision about offering the child a place in your home.

If you are transferring from an IFA or have previous experience of being a foster carer you will probably start as a Level 2 or Level 3 carer. Level 2 carers receive £455 weekly per child and Level 3 carers receive £533 weekly per child. If you are a specialist carer you could receive more.

If you're interested in joining us, call us on 020 8359 6274 or email fostering@barnet.gov.uk to find out about our transfer protocol.
