Kent Fostering Allowances
We recognise that looking after a child or young person has financial implications which is why as a foster carer you are paid a weekly competitive fostering allowance which is made up of a professional fee for yourself and also a day to day living allowance for the child. There are a number of different factors which contribute to how much foster carers are paid per week. Compass average payments of £370 for every child per week living in your home.
