How much do you get for Fostering

another ConDem reduction
Essex County Council  is ConDem
Aspiring foster carers could be paid as little as £28 per week to look after vulnerable children.
That is according to the new fee structure announced by Essex County Council.
There will now be three levels of payments: carers on the standard level will be paid £28 per week, intermediate level will receive £125 per week and advanced level, will be paid £250 per week.
Foster carers are also eligible for a weekly allowance.

Re: How much do you get for Fostering

My eldest son and his wife foster problem teenagers as respite for regular fosterer's. They're in Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) I've no idea how much they're paid. I rather thought it was only incidental expenses but could be wrong.
Judging by the very little they say about it, its a tough job. Anybody taking it on purely for the money should think of another way of raising funds.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
