Foster carer fees

Foster carers should be provided with adequate fee payments to recognise their time, skills and experience. 

Whilst all foster carers receive an allowance to cover the costs of caring for a child in foster care. There is no requirement for fostering services to provide foster carers with a fee. As a result, some foster carers receive no fee payment, and for those who do, the levels are often low.

Fees and allowances


All foster carers receive a weekly fostering allowance which is designed to cover the cost of caring for a fostered child. This should cover food, clothes, toiletries and all other expenses incurred in looking after a fostered child.
