You can foster with Surrey County Council in a number of different ways, and the payment that you receive will depend on the type of fostering that you do and your skills and experience as a foster carer.
The following pages will tell you about the different types of fostering that Surrey offers, and the training, support and payments for each. They will help you decide which sort of fostering might be right for you although you do not have to decide this right at the start of the approval process. You might even combine some of the different types of fostering depending on your circumstances. This can be one of the aspects of fostering that you explore with your assessing social worker.
