Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Find out how we’re supporting you during coronavirus (COVID-19).

Fostering allowances

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.

In return we expect each foster carer to complete 6 training sessions per year and attend 6 support groups per year.
