Foster carers in Calderdale could get pay boost
They deserve a pay rise more than most.
Now Calderdale’s foster carers are set to be rewarded with extra cash thanks to an agreement from councillors.
The council’s senior team has recommended a £400,000 cash boost to the service to encourage carers to foster siblings and older children who may have more difficulty finding a placement.
