I have often considering fostering, before I had children and as they’ve got older. Being able to help a little child get support in the start of their journey, to me, feels like the most courageous thing anyone can do. One of the common concerns that would-be foster carers talk about is money. It’s a taboo subject in society as a whole. However, for foster carers, it can be an even greater minefield. It is vital that prospective foster carers realise that foster caring is a paid profession. You will be financially supported to ensure that you can provide a good level of care and support to the children you foster.
