Transferring from an Independent Fostering Agency (IFA)

If you are already a foster carer and thinking about a change to MKC, we will make the transition as smooth as possible for you and fast track your application.

Benefits of fostering for Milton Keynes

  • Your social worker and the children’s social worker are working for the same organisation, following the same policies. 
  • We value and recognise your experience.
  • We provide support and training locally. Saving you time and travel.
  • We always look to place children with our carers first and we want them to be local.
  • As an MK carer you would only have Milton Keynes’ children placed with you so would only need to work with one local authority
  • We take our time to plan placements to work for you and the child.
  • Incentive payments to join us.
  • Extensive and exciting training programme 
  • Local support groups available 
  • Competitive rates of pay and allowances 
  • We provide free membership to The Fostering Network
