Why 5Fostering?

How much support do I get? How much do I get paid as a foster carer? How often will training be? These are all questions we are often asked – Here is a list of the benefits:


Local tailored training - Our training is always at a local venue in East Sussex. We also tailor our training for each session regarding changes in legislation and current issues.


Allowance up to £630 per week, per placement - Dependent on skill, experience and placement type. We also offer some extras;

    • Start of school for school uniforms, books etc,

    • Birthday and Christmas

    • “Welcome the child” allowance to be spent on an event to welcome the child to your family.


24/7 local Support - Local support is provided by members of 5Fostering who can offer advice and local support. They will guide you through any difficulties you are having and will be at the end of the phone 24/7.


Monthly support meetings - As well as social events, carers have the opportunity to share their expertise with other carers at support meetings.


Respite breaks - We understand that breaks here and there are essential for every carer. Each carer will receive 21 nights paid respite per year.


Placement through careful matching - To create the greatest opportunity for the child or young person and carer to be successful we carefully match them together.


A Professional Framework for careers - We welcome all carers, new and experienced. We provide relevant training and remuneration for volunteer ‘Buddies’ through to specialist Therapeutic Carers.


FUN !!! - Fostering is a rewarding and fulfilling career which makes a fantastic difference to people’s lives. We will ensure that there will be frequent opportunities during training, community building and social events to relax and not take ourselves too seriously; to relieve some of the inevitable stress of our privileged roles.
