Information – foster care.
We provide comprehensive information about foster care and help you to reduce the risk of you choosing the wrong fostering agency.
Types of agencies – allowances
Just like people, Fostering Agencies are not all the same. They have different support, allowances, quality of training, and access to respite care and support groups. Not all agencies foster babies, some prefer to look after teenagers, some agencies expect you to be at home full time, others are happy if you have another job.
