Transfer of Foster Carers Protocol 2016
Liverpool City Council Fostering Service has adopted the principles of the Transfer Protocol advised by the Fostering Network (2012).
The protocol 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. It recognises that the welfare of any child in placement is paramount.
Foster carers have the right to freedom of movement between fostering services.
