You will need:

  • A spare room. This is essential and it is not considered a spare room if two of your children are sharing.
  • If you are fostering with a partner, you need two years of living together.
  • The time to give a young person.


Fostering Allowance:

The fostering allowance you receive increases depending on the needs of the children and the number of children you have placed. As a foster carer you are self employed and most foster carers do not pay tax on what they receive. You will receive a minimum of £450 a week when you foster with Apex.
