Other than in emergency foster carers must give at least four weeks’ notice in writing of their intention to resign from the agency.


Resignations will be notified to the GLF Fostering Panel or to the Panel Chair within this four-week period.


Resignations should whenever possible be timed to coincide with the departure of all children in placement.


GLF will notify the carer’s home local authority that they have ceased to be GLF foster carers.


In accordance with data protection legislation GLF will share the information it holds on carers and ex-carers with other agencies such as local authorities or other fostering agencies as appropriate.
