Channels & Choices launches a brand-new increased pay structure for all foster carers.
We can all agree that with the cost of living crisis, the rise in fuel bills, food and basic expenditure, times are a bit tougher than they have been.
We regularly assess our benefits packages for foster carers and after sitting down with our “Fostering Ambassadors” we are delighted to announce that as of the 1st June, we have implemented a 10% pay rise across the board for all foster carers.
This means that a level 1 Therapeutic Foster Carer will receive £495 per child per week.
A Level 2 Advanced Therapeutic Foster Carer will receive £550 per child per week.
A Level 3 Specialist Therapeutic Foster Carer will receive £605 per child per week.
Alongside allowances and other benefits, a carer could receive up to £34,500 per year with just one child in placement.
A Level 3 Specialist Therapeutic Foster Carer with two children in placement will receive £65,720 per year.
Of course, that’s alongside the specialist training, expert support 24/7 and complimentary invitations to all the amazing community events that Channels & Choices regularly hosts, enabling you to meet other carers and help the child you are caring for improve their social skills amongst their peers.
