Dear Dorset County Council,

Please can you quantify -

Current basic Fostering Allowances in your area, per age of child.
Do these Allowances include Child Benefit, or do Foster Parents
receive Child Benefit in addition to Fostering Allowances?

Additional Allowances paid for things like Christmas and Birthday
Presents, Holidays, School Uniform, etc.

Yours faithfully,

A Williams
