Fostering Fees and Allowances
As soon as you’re an approved foster carer with TACT and begin caring for a young person, you will immediately receive a fostering allowance. For almost all foster carers, this allowance will be tax free and will not affect benefits you’re currently receiving.
We understand what a big decision it is to choose to become a foster carer and how much you will be paid is a big factor in that decision. TACT pay generous fostering allowances to help make sure fostering is a viable choice for you and your family. If you want to find out more about fostering pay, please do not hesitate to contact our fostering enquiry team.
