fostering in 2023


Are you think about fostering a child in 2023? Welcoming a foster child into your home is a massive step and a huge commitment; so it’s really important that you take some time to consider whether fostering is right for you and your family.

It takes a huge amount of courage to start the fostering journey, but once you have, you won’t regret it. The feeling of helping to change a child’s life is likely to be like nothing else you have ever experienced. Here at Lorimer, we support each person who wants to change a child’s life for the better. So, if you’re thinking about fostering; here are a few of the many benefits of becoming a Foster Carer with Lorimer.


While fostering may initially be one of the biggest leaps of faith you could ever possibly make in your life; you’ll soon realise how privileged you are to be in a position where you can not only improve the life of your foster children, but better your own life as well.

Seeing a once sad and unconfident foster child blossom into a positive and hopeful young person gives you an incomparable sense of pride. For most people, being able to make a positive difference to a vulnerable child or young person is the main reason behind them becoming a Foster Carer. These differences don’t just last a few days or weeks, but they often really do last an entire lifetime.


Although financial incentives should never be the core reason for becoming a Foster Carer, the fact of the matter is that fostering with an independent agency like us is a financially rewarding prospect. Our foster care allowance and various reward payments that we offer our carers enables them to fully concentrate on being the best Foster Carer possible.

In addition to this, as a Foster Carer, you’ll also be eligible to apply for favourable tax relief opportunities. To gather more information about how much tax relief Foster Carers are likely to receive, read our blog here.
