This research, by LE Wales and the Hadley Centre for Adoption and Foster Care Studies, was commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government. The aim of the research was to provide a more defined methodology to estimate the costs to foster parents of bringing up a fostered child to be used as a basis for setting minimum fostering allowances across Wales. The research also considered issues relevant to the development of a ‘fees framework’ for foster carers in Wales.
