Transfer from NFA to Perpetual Fostering and get £500
We'd love to have you as part of our fostering community
If you’re an approved foster carer with NFA and wish to transfer to another agency, we could be the right one for you. And furthermore, we’ll give you £500 upon successful transfer to us.
We’re looking for approved carers to help us place more children and young people in need in the West Midlands and North West of England. And as well as a cash sign up bonus, more importantly, we offer all of our carers unrivalled support and competitive allowances.
We are Perpetual Fostering
We're an independent fostering agency based in Bolton. We cover the whole of the North West and West Midlands.
We have supported more than 1,000 carers and children over more than 20 years.
We're committed to supporting the children we place and helping them fulfil their potential.
Our foster families and children build such successful relationships because we meet everyone's emotional and professional needs.
Why Transfer from NFA to Perpetual Fostering?
We’ve built an incredible team of people who are just as passionate about supporting the carers as they are about supporting the young people. We really want to change outcomes for young people in care and just like you, we want to see them do well and be happy.
So we’ve developed the expertise to help both our carers and the young people in their care to achieve that.
Regular visits and a support network on tap are amongst the options we have. We also host regular optional meetups for our carers and young people to get together for a chat and to share experiences.
We offer competitive allowances for our carers too.

Here are testimonials from some of the carers with us
We transferred to Perpetual Fostering when we moved house and were really surprised at just how quick and simple a process it was. We've been foster carers for a few years now but really noticed an improvement in the support we received once we moved over to Perpetual. The communication is always great and we know if ever we need anything we can always pick up the phone. I'd highly recommend this fostering agency.
Sarah & Michael (Greater Manchester)
I moved to Perpetual Fostering from another agency because I just felt like I wasn't getting the best support I could have from my previous fostering agency. The transfer was quick and smooth. At Perpetual Fostering, I know I have support on hand when I need it and I've met lots of other carers through the agency too, helping me to create my own support network.
Joan & Peter (Lancashire)
Transferring fostering agency was a difficult decision for me and I agonised over it for a while to be honest. But I just didn't feel completely supported as a carer with my previous agency and Perpetual Fostering was recommended to me by a fellow carer. I was nervous about the move itself, particularly as I had an active placement at the time I moved over. The last thing I wanted was to cause more disruption for them too. But it was such a smooth process. I am now getting an improved allowance, much better support from the team at the agency and I got a welcome bonus too. I wish I'd done it years ago.
