DLA/Foster Care/Respire Care

My 8 yr old Foster Son is going into respite for 15 nights.

The agency can't find a Carer so have had to go to another agency.

The new agency wants me to provide them with DS DLA money whilst I am away, and they will still be getting their money from the agency for looking after him.

I usually budget this money for additional clothing and for August when respite is taking place, buy additional school uniform for September.

Do I HAVE to pass this money over to the respite Carer...?

Any advice greatly appreciated.
