Financial support

Foster carers receive a weekly allowance for each child which varies according to the age of the child. Currently, the amount varies from £122 to £179 per week.

In addition, Foster Carers receive a weekly fee for the first child placed and 70% of the full fee for subsequent children in placement at the same time. At present, our carers receive £110 for a child aged under 11 years and £120 for a young person aged 11 years plus.

For some young people with particularly challenging behaviour an additional support package may be available.

Foster carers also receive an annual holiday grant, Christmas/festival and birthday allowances in respect of a foster child.

Carers who offer regular short planned break care receive a proportion of the weekly allowance and fee depending upon the period of care given.

For more information about the financial rewards available please call our team on 0800-9555-311.

We also recognise the importance of offering ongoing practical support.
