Did you know, as a Blackpool foster carer, you can get exclusive discounts that can really add up? When you choose to foster with us, you will also become a member of The Fostering Network, the UK’s largest fostering community. One of the many benefits of being a member is that you’ll be able to enjoy a wide range of discounts to make fostering even more rewarding!

Mortgage and insurance discounts

With your Fostering Network membership though, you can speak directly with Towergate for your home insurance needs. They have insurance products tailored to foster care and offer a 10% discount on the cost of a policy for new customers.

Likewise, The Mortgage Brain offer tailored mortgage advice to foster carers and arrange mortgages for a discounted fee of £150.

Fixed fee tax returns

Williams Giles currently has a fixed fee tax return service for foster carers. As a way of ‘giving back’, Williams Giles is also offering 5% off their fixed-fee service to new customers and donating 5% of their standard fee back to The Fostering Network.

Discounts off family activities

We know 2020/21 hasn’t quite been the year we’d all hoped for in terms of family days out. However, now that venues are reopening, it’s worth looking at those places offering discounts.

A range of family attractions across the UK offer up to 52% off for foster carer members, including Blackpool’s very own Tower Circus and Eye, as well as Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Madame Tussauds and Sea Life Centres.

If you’re a fan of heights and love an adventure, Go Ape offers 10% off for members. Blackpool's closest venue is Go Ape Rivington, which is home to several treetop challenges, zip lines, and high ropes.

Haven, Hoseasons and also offer a 10% saving for foster families looking for a getaway. Just make sure you book in advance as this Summer’s expected to be a bumper year for UK holidays.

Hobby discounts

If you and your children like arts and crafts, you’ll love the 15% discount from Baker Ross. They literally have hundreds of activities, supplies and themed crafts for every occasion. Best of all, they offer home delivery.

If you’re a fan of party games, Big Potato Games has a massive 40% off online orders for foster carers. Their games are easy to pick up but impossible to put down!

If cooking is your favourite thing to do and you want to inspire the younger ones in your care to try new healthy foods, Little Cooks Co is offering foster carers £10 off any of their three-month subscriptions.

Everyone loves a discount, although there are plenty more rewards for our foster carers. If you’d like to find out more, we’d love to hear from you.
