What you can earn as a Foster Carer
As a Foster Carer you will receive a non taxable Fostering Allowance. This is to cover the costs associated with caring for the foster children in your care and your pay as a professional Foster Carer. Below our calculators illustrate the total amount you could receive over a 12 month period, then splits this down into the typical costs to support the foster placement(s) and the money you could earn as a foster carer.
As we say … “No two Fostering Agencies are the same”, this includes what rates they pay to their Fostering Carers. Therefore these calculators are a typical example and not guaranteed.
