Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please could you tell me your 2022-23 weekly foster care allowances for all age
bands, NOT including any fee/reward element for foster carers.
Please detail any allowances that ALL foster carers can claim in addition to their
weekly allowance, e.g., holiday allowance or mileage.
Please could you tell me your 2022-23 weekly allowances for former foster carers
looking after young people in 18+ Staying Put arrangements, broken down by year 1,
year 2, and year 3 if necessary.

Yours faithfully,
