Fostering is a rewarding career choice as supporting a young person to settle, develop and then grow in a safe caring environment can give great self satisfaction.
All of Able’s foster carers receive twenty four hour a day support and access to a vast array of resources and training opportunities.
We are aware however that satisfaction, support and training does not pay the bills and at Able our carers are rewarded with generous financial allowances.
As well as standard allowances for managing young peoples care, should additional needs be identified the agency would offer foster carers additional financial support. The agency also offers birthday and religious festival allowances for young people as well as holiday allowances and travelling allowances.
In taking away financial concerns we feel we give foster carers the opportunity to focus on their chosen roles.
