Many people do work and foster but our fostering allowance means you may not need to. When you foster with us, we will always want to know that you are able to put a child you are looking after first.
By this, we mean if something happened at school or a child in your care was poorly…could you drop everything to be there for them?
We have many foster parents who work. Often they are self-employed or they work from home and have more flexibility from their employers.
You will need to consider your own circumstances and whether it’s right for you to become a foster parent – or if you can adapt your circumstances. As many foster children will have missed out on parental time and will need you to be there for them.
Most of our foster parents consider fostering to be their full time job. Those that work alongside fostering are in a position to put a child or young person in their care first and have an ability to attend various meetings and training.
Finance & allowances
Foster care is a great direction to take in your life. Our foster parents see it as a rewarding role that allows them to help young people develop and grow while earning a generous allowance.
Types of fostering
Every foster child is an individual. That’s why we offer various kinds of fostering placements, from short term to long term, placements for children with a disability and many more.
