Using Rooster as a Foster Family

Group of kids enjoying RoosterMoney app and card

RoosterMoney has been helping Foster families manage their pocket money for some years and we’re proud to offer that support through our pocket money app and the educational resources provided alongside.  We believe that the world would be a better place if we all started talking to our children about money a little earlier in life, and that’s no different if you’re a child in  foster care. We’ve worked hard to make RoosterMoney relevant to Foster Families, whether you want  to transfer your subscription between children or download  pocket money statements to help you keep track for your Social Worker – we’re here to help.

'‘A really useful thing about RoosterMoney is the ability to show at child care reviews, to social workers… that we can evidence the child’s pocket money and spending - you can just show it on the app and it’s instant!’'

You can also use the ‘Split Allowance’ feature to automatically divide their allowance into different pots and apply pot restrictions to give you the control over spending you might need.
