Fees and allowances

We provide a competitive fee and allowance for our foster carers totalling a maximum of £2,197 per child per month depending on the child’s age.

Council tax grant

We offer an additional incentive allowance to encourage more people to become foster carers.

As well as a competitive payment we also provide council tax payment for all of our foster carers irrespective of the council they reside in.

All carers get council tax reimbursed for the time a child or young person is in placement with them.
