What is fostering really like?

What kind of help will I get?

You won't have to cope on your own.  We will support you with regular visits and training, and the child's social worker will visit regularly too.  We run training courses on a wide range of subjects such as dealing with children's behaviour, and other foster carers will also offer you advice and support.

What about financial help?

We will give you a weekly allowance to cover the day-to-day expenses of caring for a child.  Details will be available when we visit you at your home.
