Foster carers will receive a professional fee and allowances to cover the cost of caring for child/children.
We believe that we offer a competitive fee for our foster carers in recognition of their skills and on going commitment to meet the challenges of fostering.
Payment of fees and allowances can be confusing at times, you will be given information on finances on our initial visit and subsequent financial advice will be made available following approval as a foster carer.
This is also detailed in our “Foster carers Handbook".
See "Will I get paid" in the "Thinking of fostering?" FAQ section.
