All carers receive an allowance to help them care for the foster children that are placed with them. All Foster Carers receive a Fostering Maintenance Allowance to cover the costs of food, clothing, personal needs and other necessities for the child in placement.
The allowance paid is made at a rate applicable to the child’s age. The allowances are reviewed annually and Foster Carers notified as rates are revised.
Please see the attached document for a break down of the financial arrangements.
