What does foster care cost?

Being a foster parent will cost you nothing - just what you see below.

Be in no doubt, fostering is a major commitment in your life, your family's life and the life of the child you look after. Patience, a sense of humour, compassion, strength of character and dedication are all needed. You should also be aware there is financial support available to you for fostering.

Energy & commitment

Energy & commitment

In your own life you will have been aware of adults who stuck by you no matter what - you will need to find a similar strength and commitment. The energy you expend in engaging children in your care will be richly rewarded.



It will be your love of children and watching them grow and develop which has brought you to considering fostering. This will carry you through the challenges ahead.



You have no more valuable resource to offer than the time you spend building a relationship with a child who is placed with you - and it will take time.

A Happy Home

Perhaps this is something we take for granted? Sharing this happiness is a wonderful gift which will change young lives.
