Fostering and finances


All foster carers receive a weekly allowance. This is intended to cover the costs of looking after a child, for example food, clothing and pocket money, and the amount will vary depending on the age of the child. Each fostering service sets its own allowance levels, although there are minimum levels in place in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
