Thinking about fostering? How much do foster carers get paid?
A question we often get asked is ‘how much do foster carers get paid’. Knowing how much money you will earn as a foster carer, is important. It is important to know that you can afford to foster.
GLF carers can expect to be paid around £400 each week, for every child they look after.
The money carers receive is intended to be split between the costs associated with looking after the child, and the foster carer’s ‘reward’ for fostering. Fostering is after all, a profession and so it should be rewarded.
