Saving for the Future

16th April, 2024

Did you know that every foster child is given money for savings?

Saving for the future

Capstone Foster Care provides a monthly amount for foster carers to put into savings for each child in their care. It’s up to the foster carer to manage the savings account as the young person will not be able to access their money until their eighteenth birthday.

This is to support young people as they journey on into independence when they come of age.

Other Foster Carer fees

It will be the responsibility of the foster carers to manage the savings account, this money is specifically for the young person and is paid in addition to foster carer fees.

As the foster carer you will be paid a fee based on the age of the child, their needs and the type of arrangement they are in plus an allowance to cover the everyday costs that come with looking after a child, household expenses, food, clothing etc. You can find out more detail about how much foster carers get paid on our fees page.
