FOSTER CARER ALLOWANCE

All foster carers get an allowance to cover the cost of caring for a child in their home and also get paid in recognition of their skills, commitment or time. These allowances include provision for food, which includs school meals, household costs e.g. heating, electricity, general wear and tear, clothing and footwear, pocket money and travel costs.

Foster carers are free to spend the allowance on food, household and travel expenses as they feel benefit the child most. The carers receive additional payments for other essential items for birthdays and Christmas.
