im sure that they dont take your other income into consideration you still get the fostering money

if they had any issues regarding your health (as you get DLA etc) they wouldnt have placed the children into your care in the first place so i cant see it being affected

best wishes

As far as I'm aware, fostering allowance should not effect your benefits, though you should still declare it to the relevant benefit offices, with documentation to show exactly what you receive. You're probably aware that while fostering you will not be able to claim child benefit or tax credits for the children you foster.
