We recognise that looking after a child or young person has financial implications, which is why we provide a generous fostering package which includes a monthly fostering payment, plus other allowances. The fostering payment is made up of two elements: a fee and an allowance, both of which are payable when caring for a child or young person. The monthly fee is a reward payment in recognition of your skills, training and development and the allowance is to cover the cost of caring for the child or young person.
We also provide financial support for Summer Holidays, Religious Festivals and Birthdays, for each of the young people you care for. We also offer 12 nights of respite for each child over a 12 month period, which is funded by us.
