Thousands of discounts through The Exchange

We provide all of our foster parents with discounts to hundreds of high street brands, online stores and supermarkets; helping you save hundreds of pounds a year on everyday items. You can also save money on days out for all the family too. From London theatre tickets, theme park adventures, Ticketmaster or your local cinema, our discount scheme will help bring down the cost of family fun so you can make amazing memories for less.

Refer a friend bonus

We know that our foster parents are amazing advocates for fostering. That's why we offer a thank-you payment when someone you refer successfully becomes an approved foster parent. You'll also receive another payment after they've completed their first year of fostering with us. It's a way to show how much we appreciate the support that our approved foster parents offer to those who are new to fostering.

Birthday and Christmas presents

To help celebrate those special occasions, you will receive a financial contribution from Fostering People towards the cost of birthday and Christmas presents for all foster children in your care.

Paid respite

Everybody needs a break, so we pay our foster parents 14 nights of respite, pro rota, to ensure you have the opportunity to relax and unwind. Sometimes, you may not feel the need to take a break, however you'll still receive your respite payment regardless, with many foster parents choosing to use it towards the cost of a family holiday instead.
