Will I receive financial support from Compass?
Whilst fostering is an incredibly selfless thing to do, it isn’t a charity. At Compass Fostering we pay our carers a generous allowance which takes into account the number and nature of children in your care. Payments vary for each placement depending on the needs of the child, age and whether they’re part of a sibling group. You can find examples of the kind of allowances we offer on our Payments & Rewards page.
Why Compass Fostering?
With us, you’ll be joining a team of professionals. We give carers the opportunity to build a career in fostering through training, mentoring, involvement in local support groups, recruiting other carers and developing a host of skills that enhance your expertise as a foster carer.
Our foster carers receive extensive support, generous allowances and everything they need to help children and young people find emotional stability and security. We know that while fostering is often highly rewarding, it can also be challenging at times: this is why we constantly look at new and innovative ways of supporting our carer families to minimise any challenges and support the placement.
