What is an independent fostering agency (IFA)?

An IFA is an independent fostering agency, which is a private company offering fostering services. They are occasionally commissioned by local authorities when there is a shortage of foster carers or placements in a local region. A private foster carer is someone who is registered with an IFA rather than a local council, but their main responsibilities are the same.
