Transferring to foster for Richmond

We are always looking for a range of foster carers who are based in and around the Borough.

How to transfer

If you are already approved with another agency but are looking to transfer please contact us to discuss.

We follow the Fostering Network's Transfer of Foster Carers Protocol(pdf, 72KB) throughout the transfer process.

Borough statistics

As of 31 March 2015 we had 98 children in care. Of those, 22% were placed at a distance of more than 20 miles from the borough. Ideally we want children placed within 20 miles of their home, where this is safe and appropriate.

Of the 98 children there were:

  • 51 males
  • 47 females

Ages of the children:

  • Under 1 year - 4
  • 1 to 5 years - 4
  • 6 to 10 years - 11
  • 11 to 15 years - 43
  • 16+ years - 36
