Fostering fees and allowances

At Fostering People, we’re proud to be local. However, working in local communities doesn’t just mean that we can offer great support. It means we can offer our foster carers better financial allowances too.

That’s because we don’t have to spend money supporting offices all over the country. As a result, our carers benefit from generous fostering fees that enable them to commit their full time and attention to fostering.

You’ll begin receiving your fostering allowance as soon as a child is placed in your care. The amount you’ll receive varies from placement to placement but will cover expenses including food, clothing, travel and bills, along with an additional fee to reward you for your hard work.

Our foster carers currently receive a foster care allowance of between £390 and £700, depending on the age of the child and the type of placement.

To discuss foster care payments with us in more detail, please fill in the enquiry form on the left hand side of this page. Alternatively, give us a call on 0800 077 8159 and our team will be happy to help.
