We regard fostering as a profession, often involving continuous input and appreciate that the monetary award is an important consideration. Our intention is to offer a highly competitive financial package and you will be given an allowance on a per child per night basis, when a child/young person is actually in residence. You will not be given this allowance if you do not have a child placed with you. Additional fees apply if for example you are looking after a Parent and Child or a young person with disabilities.

Safehouses also offer a Bonus Scheme which is a recognition of the ongoing work of the foster carer throughout the year. The reward is based upon how much training and how many support groups the Foster Carer has attended, and also how the past year of fostering has been for them.
