» 14 October '10 - LE Wales research on an allowance and fees framework for foster carers published.

This research, by LE Wales and the Hadley Centre for Adoption and Foster Care Studies, was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government. The aim of the research was 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.

The research is available here.
