Fostering Allowances

Of course, fostering isn’t about financial gain, but remuneration is both necessary and forthcoming.

The rewards of fostering

All of our foster carers deserve rewards for their amazing work and dedication. Wholistic Fostering pay an allowance towards the cost of looking after children and young people.

The rewards on offer for fostering aren’t only financial rewards. We provide close support and informative practical training to all of our foster carers and many will tell you this is invaluable, as these are part of your toolkit which provide skills that help make you sought after as a foster carer.

What sort of allowance do Wholistic offer?

Exact amounts do vary from placement to placement depending on a variety of factors. Things like the ages of the children and young person could be placed with you, the type of placement as well as the reality of some children and young people with more challenging needs than others.

The standard payment for Wholistic Fostering will usually vary between £340 and £520 a week, depending on the type of placement.

Tax relief for foster carers

Foster carers are classed as self-employed, which entitles them to some tax exemptions. You’ll additionally receive any benefits you are already be entitled to.
