Foster carers get an allowance especially for kitting out any newly placed foster kids. SS provide a basic wardrobe list that all kids should have and the carers get the dosh for it. After that, the carers buy it out of the fostering allowance.

Carers do get money, but some of the ones i met say it covers basics, at prices such as those in Primarks, so if you can top it up with some quality donations it's all good isn't it.

Also as my parents have found that sometimes kids are placed late at night wearing literally rags, just something to wear whilst they can go shopping for new is appreciated. My parents recently had 4 siblings placed late at night, luckily I could botch a nightwear outfit and a day outfit out of my dc's clothes for them.

Foster carers do get money to kit kids out but if they are suddenly landed with 3 small terrified and traumatised children, the last thing they are going to want to do the very next day is drag them around clothes shopping. They need a stash, and as they don't get the money until they have the child, it can be very difficult to Keep an adequate stash to cover all situations.

And outof all the kids who deserve some nice quality donations, I'd say foster kids do.

I can see this is an old thread but still think it's a good idea. How do you find out who fosters?
