Support and Renumeration

Fostering can be both a rewarding and challenging experience and we recognise that remuneration is important for everyone who fosters, although this should not be the main motivation.

At PACFS, although primarily a provision for Parent and Child foster placements, we also provide a range of services which potential carers can choose from.
In addition, our foster carers come from a wide variety of backgrounds with a wealth of life experiences and relevant skills to offer children/young people.

Having a criminal record does not automatically exclude a person from becoming a foster carer with us, however certain offences or circumstances will affect the progression of a person's application.

 

 


Work out if you need to pay tax



Our foster carers have access to the following:-

 

  • Regular support and visits from an appropriately qualified Social Worker.
  • Additional wilful damage Insurance cover on your home.
  • A regular programme of training delivered to meet carers’ needs.
  • Regular support group meetings.
  • Consultation in relation to the function and operation of the Agency.
  • Organised activities for children.
  • The Director and Registered Manager of the service.
  • Specialist skills training.
  • Financial remuneration which recognises carer skills and experience.
  • Support and assistance with enrolling children in local schools, registration with GPs etc.
  • Additional resources to support the child in the placement as necessary.
