Foster carer fees and allowances

Holiday allowance for foster carers

The amount of holiday allowance you get depends on your foster child's age. 

  • Child aged 0 to 10 years: £7 per week (equal to £364 over a year)
  • Child or young person aged 11 to 17 years: £10 per week (equal to £520 over a year) 

Holiday allowance helps to cover the cost of taking your foster child with you on trips or family holidays. You can use it to pay for things like:

  • Transport
  • Accommodation
  • Luggage

You can claim expenses for holidays with school or youth groups, so you don't need to use your holiday allowance to cover these.
