The Welsh Assembly Government greatly values the contribution that foster carers make in caring for vulnerable children, and are committed to ensuring they are supported.
We commissioned London Economics Ltd and the Hadley Centre for Adoption and Foster Care Studies to provide a more defined methodology to estimate the costs to foster parents of bringing up a fostered child to be used as a basis for setting minimum fostering allowances across Wales. The research also considered issues relevant to the development of a ‘fees framework’ for foster carers in Wales.
