As well as generous weekly pay, you’ll also be entitled to the following benefits:
We offer a maximum of 21 nights respite per Fostered child or young person. You can utilise our large pool of experienced Foster Parents or ask your own friends and family to step in whilst you take a break. 14 days of respite can also be re-claimed if it goes unused.
You’ll receive free membership to FosterTalk which provides a range of benefits to its members, including: free advice lines covering finance, counselling, education, personal advice; and special discounts, exclusive for Foster Parents, on a wide range of products and services, from insurance to theme park tickets and holidays.
Long Service Rewards
As a ‘Thank you’ for your hard work and dedication to Fostering, our Foster Parents receive Red Letter experience days and spending money as a little reward for everything that they do.
Refer a Friend Scheme
Do you know someone who Fosters already or who you think would make a great Foster Parent? We’ll reward you up to £2,000 for referring a friend or family member who goes onto successfully foster with By the Bridge.
As well as Fostering, you can also use your skills and knowledge to do some extra work with us, whether that be supervising family contact between a Fostered child and their birth families, or acting as an ‘Appropriate Adult’ for a child who is in trouble.
Fostered Children and Family Events
We host a number of events throughout the year for you, the children that you look after and your own your family. These are all organised and paid for by us and include summer fun days, craft afternoons, trips to theme parks and festivals to ensure there are always things for you to do. It’s a great way to build new and existing relationships.
