Different types of fostering, allowance, pay, babies, children, teenagers, advice?

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.

To be a foster carer you will need to have:
• The time and energy to invest in a child or young person
• A bedroom for the exclusive use of the foster child
• Couples will need to arrange their working hours so that one carer can be available full time
• Single carers will need to be at home full-time or have flexible employment
• A full UK driving licence or have excellent transport links

Be a foster carer – Let’s get together.

Britain’s oldest working mine is in Winsford, Cheshire. It is a salt mine that was first dug in 1844 and now produces around 30,000 tons of salt a week.

The salt bed itself is 25 metres thick and tunnels run for over 125 miles and Cheshire cheese was recorded in the Domesday Book and Elizabeth I also enjoyed it.
