As a Foster Parent, you will receive a weekly allowance for any child that is placed in your care. Children and parents with additional needs will attract a higher weekly allowance. Only applicable to new placements starting from January 2022.
Additionally, you will be entitled to other supplementary allowances:
Birthday and Festivals Allowance:
These allowances are provided to the foster carer in order to purchase gifts for the child to celebrate their birthday and religious festivals.
The £100.00 one off annual payment is for children in secondary school and is designed to assist with the cost of branded school uniform.
The holiday allowances are provided to the carer, in order that the carer can provide an annual holiday for the child/ren.
