Answers to Your Questions

We've put together answers to the main questions that we are asked about fostering children - including information about your health, age, how to set up your home and how you get paid.

How We Support You

As a foster carer you are not just left on your own! You will be assigned your own dedicated Social Worker and be in a local network of other carers to provide help, support and advice.

5 Steps to Fostering

From applying to become a foster carer to being approved there are 5 key steps you will take. First you'll meet with a social worker to talk about fostering - its your chance to ask lots of questions.

The actual amount paid to a foster carer is dependent on the age of the child/children and also the children’s assessed needs and requirements.
You’ll find that the amount we pay to foster carers is made up of two parts. It includes the government fostering allowance and an amount that we call our professional carer fee. We pay our foster carers every two weeks when they have a foster child living with them in their home.
As a foster carer you are also entitled to take paid respite breaks.
