Fostering allowances

Posted on: 28 January 2021

We pay a generous allowance of up to £489 per week, per child, depending on their level of need.

Allowances are paid weekly, directly into your bank and cover all expenses of caring for a child and the time you spend looking after them.

Each child receives a birthday, holiday and festival allowance, again depending on their age. We also pay mileage for transporting a child to school, attending family contact meetings, training and support groups.

We offer a full package of professional support and training to ensure you have all the tools you need to be the very best carer you can be. We expect each foster carer to complete 6 training sessions per year and attend 6 support groups per year.
