Fostering allowance London
We recognise that looking after a child or young person has financial implications which is why as a Compass foster carer you are paid a weekly fostering allowance. This is made up of a professional fee for yourself and also a day to day living allowance for the child or young person. There are a number of different factors which contribute to how much foster carers are paid per week, such as the type of placement you take or how many children you are able to care for. Compass average payments of £370 for every child per week living in your home. You can learn more about London fostering payments here.

We run regular training and support sessions for foster carers, and those who would like to learn more, at five venues across London:
