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.
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.

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.
