Not personally, but it does happen. It depends on the circumstances. If they have identified a family member as a long term carer you would be unlikely to succeed. Otherwise it is quite likely that you would, but it would probably mean you couldn't foster for a while which might be difficult for you financially.

I am not sure as its complex, but it cost 1 carer I know of about £12k, though it was long and involved appeals, and her case has made subsequent cases easier, so less than that I would think.
