foster care allowance calculator

How do the fostering payments work?

We pay a generous allowance to ensure that our foster parents can provide the very best care to children, while also being rewarded for all their hard work.

Our weekly fostering allowance is made up of two parts:

  • Child's allowance - an allowance to cover the cost of caring for a child, such as food, clothing, toiletries, transport, outings, pocket money, and general day-to-day activities.
  • Foster parent fee - designed to reward foster parents for the amazing work they do in supporting the children and young people in their care.

Great rewards and benefits for foster parents
