Types of fostering

There are different types of fostering. You should consider what skills and experience you have, as well as what would suit you and your family best.

11 plus

The 11 plus scheme is for foster carers who have significant experience of working with or caring for other people's children, preferably teenagers, in a professional capacity or as an experienced foster carer. 

You would need to be committed to providing long term placements for young people aged 11 and over. 

As an 11 plus foster carer you will receive an income of £200 per week, plus regular weekly fostering allowances.

11 plus carers, whilst approved to foster by Nottinghamshire County Council, are not employed by the Council (This scheme is currently under review. Terms & Conditions apply).
