Transfer to Leeds City Council

If you're already a foster carer and are interested in transferring to Leeds City Council then please contact us.

You don't need to tell your current fostering agency that you are thinking of transferring, but you will need to resign from them if you decide to transfer to us.

Contact us on 0113 378 3538 or by email to harriet.hill@leeds.gov.uk

Here are some of the reasons to transfer to us:

  • you're more likely to have children placed with you than with an independent agency
  • we will guarantee any payments you're getting from your current provider
  • our financial resources are put directly into supporting Leeds children

There are many other reasons to foster with us.

We wouldn't normally accept a transfer if you currently have children under your care with another local authority, unless the children are moving on.
