Fostering Allowances or Fostering Fee

Are you considering to become a foster carer but are thinking how you are going to afford it and what will be paid to you for fostering a child? It is true it can be an expensive job but there is enough of financial support available to foster carers to help you to cover the costs of fostering children. Additionally, a reward element in form of a weekly fostering allowance is paid to foster carers which of course depends on children's needs.
