Transfer to Beams Foster Care

Foster carers have the right to foster with the agency of their choice, therefore Beams welcomes enquiries to transfer to Beams from experienced foster carers. 

Beams supports the Fostering Network Protocol (2014)

All Foster carers for Beams receive between £430-£450 per week per child, depending on age, in addition birthday, festival and holiday allowance are paid. Children who need a more intensive, specialist placement receive an additional allowance.  

Beams is a local agency where the directors of the Agency are involved in the day to day activity of the Agency. We want our carers to be and to feel a part of Beams.

Karen and Beryl can now see that vision coming to fruition. Foster carers who have joined Beams speak of the “child centred way in which the agency works” and say “we love being part of an Agency that knows us and we know them”.

Carers who have transferred for Beams were surprised as to how easy the process was. "Beams ensured that the whole process went smoothly", said a carer who transferred from another fostering provider.
