Foster Care Allowances

As a foster carer you will receive a competitive fee, paid monthly direct into your bank account. In addition to the normal foster caring fees, Ideal Fostering also pay out other allowances such as ...

Birthday allowance

Festival allowance

Clothing allowance

Residential school trip allowance

Contribution to bus pass

Equipment allowance

Holiday allowance

Furniture allowance

Loyalty and Incentive bonuses



We also offer a one off payment when you refer a potential foster carer to our agency.  Furthermore when our foster carers reach their five year milestone as a foster carer with Ideal Fostering their efforts are recognised by the management team and they are given a reward bonus.

Whilst the exact amount of fostering payments offered to foster carers varies, it depends on the type of placement, age of the child and the child’s individual needs.
