Further to your recent request for information, we are not able to provide
specific information as we have not previously commissioned a placement
with the conditions you outline.  Similarly, we have no costs for an
additional parent joining the placement as this is not a scenario that we
have experienced.

 

We have therefore provided in the table below figures which are in
accordance with our Foster Care tendered framework, these set out the
costs for assessment, parent and child placements, and additional child
placements.  For all placements, the fee is inclusive of supervised
contact and up to 200 miles per week transport, per person in placement. 
We have never had to pay additional transport fees for a parent and child
placement provided by an IFA.
