Different types of fostering. Allowance, babies, children, teens, agency 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. Although agencies have similar expectations, it’s important that you have a clear understanding from the start.

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 – Find the right agency, support, allowances.

The 2011 Census recorded that the population of Hampshire is 1.32 million and has increased by 6.3% since 2001. Including Portsmouth and Southampton the population is 1.76 million and Hampshire is the third most populated county in England. Hampshire gave the world the ‘greatest thing that God ever created on earth’, in Harold Pinter’s words: the noble game of cricket.

Gabardine waterproof clothing was invented by a Thomas Burberry from Basingstoke and the first known dry dock in history was built at Portsmouth in 1495 during the reign of Henry VII .

Southampton is home to the longest surviving stretch of medieval walls in England and in July 2007, there was a survey which described Southampton one of the best places to live in the UK for single people aged 18 to 30.
