Foster Care & Money

No one fosters for the money, trust us, there are far easier ways to make money – but no one can foster without money – so it’s really important you understand exactly how it works before starting your fostering journey.

Did you know that you might be paid very different amounts, depending on who you foster for? We’ve heard of there being upto £200 a week difference!!!

As a foster carer, you will receive an amount of money for each week you foster.

This money should both meet the costs of caring for a child, and also reward you for your hard work.

If you foster for us, you will receive the following amounts each week, for each child you foster:

0-10 years old, £425

11+ years old, £450

You probably have a lot of questions about fostering.

Luckily we have a lot of experience, so can usually answer them honestly. We are really happy to have an informal chat with you, about fostering, whether you are suitable, and what it’s really like. So why not arrange a 15 minute call – we promise you it will save you several hours of searching the internet for answers, plus, we really love talking to people about fostering.
