Adoption and fostering -

Report content

Hi folks


We've been adoptive parents now for a number of years and as part of the adoption package, we receive some financial assistance as part of the care. This assistance is means-tested every year. Recently, we've been approved as Foster Parents but want to know, would the payments from any foster care when we start, contribute towards the adoption support means testing - e.g. would we lose the adoption financial assistance or any part of it?


Thanks in advance all.

No. They shouldnt be. Only a small part of it is 'recompense' the rest is generally classed as 'boarding out and expenses'.

Have a look at Fostering Networks pages for more info.
