Become a Foster Carer

What does my fostering allowance cover?

Your fostering allowance is actually two payments in one. One part is covers your foster child(ren)’s living expenses such as food, clothing, school uniform, school day trips, toiletries, entertainment costs, savings and so on. It should also cover expenses such as heating and lighting. Your Blue Sky social worker will explain this in more detail, but just to reassure you, you will receive a generous fee whilst fostering with Blue Sky.
