Good Afternoon Robert,

 

Further to your recent request under the Freedom of Information Act please
see our response below:-

 

 

1) Please could you tell me your 2018-19 weekly foster care allowances for
all age bands, NOT including any fee/reward element for foster carers?

 

 

2) Please could you tell me your 2018-19 weekly allowances to former
foster carers looking after young people in When I am Ready 18+
arrangements, broken down by year 1, year 2, and year 3+ if necessary?

 

We pay the national minimum foster allowance rate recommended by Welsh
Government for aged 16 plus which is currently £199 per week. Deductions
are made if the young person is entitled to housing benefit or the housing
element of universal credit.
