Fees and allowances

Foster carers receive an allowance for the child and a fee, and those who care for children with complex and challenging needs could receive up to £650 per week.

When you become approved as a foster carer you will start on tier one which means you will receive a set fee per week, per child placed with you.

Once you have been fostering for two years and have completed the Training, Support and Development Standards for Foster Care you will receive a higher fee and be placed on tier 2.
