Alternative Care Support Payments Quick Reference Guide: Who Pays?

This booklet is a resource for carers, support agencies and the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to help everyone involved in the care of children understand which care expenses are covered by departmental payments (such as the foster care allowance) and which other items may be funded by DCF separately on a case by case basis, when these expenses are agreed in advance. Please contact your case manager or team leader if there are any queries relating to individual expenses outside of the guidelines enclosed.
