Rewards & Benefits
Money does matter and it shouldn’t be an embarrassing part of the process. You are looking after a child or young person full time and therefore we see foster care as a career path.
If you’re thinking about fostering, you may be weighing up whether to foster with your local authority or whether to choose an independent fostering agency.
So, 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.
If you are uncertain about whether you should foster or which fostering agency to choose, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
