Good Afternoon,
Thank you for your request for information below. Please see attachment
which gives comprehensive information relating to all allowances for
foster care.
Regarding child benefit - Foster Carers are not entitled to claim child
benefit for children they look after on behalf of the Local Authority.
I hope you find this information of use.
Kind Regards
Jane Corrin
