Fostering Bournemouth

Would you like to foster in Bournemouth?

We are currently on the lookout for new foster carers in the Bournemouth area.  If you would like to make a difference to a child or young person who needs someone in their life to believe in them, please contact us.

To be a foster carer you need to have at least one spare room available and have the energy and commitment to give a nurturing and supportive family environment to a vulnerable child or young person.  We are especially looking for carers who are able to offer a home to a sibling group or to a parent and their child.

Why choose Capstone Foster Care?

We offer a strong support network for all our carers by giving them comprehensive training prior to starting as foster carers, as well as ongoing training and carer support groups, so that they feel equipped and confident in the work they do.

Our staff are experienced and enthusiastic, always bearing in mind the interests of the child.  We have access to therapists and intervention workers, as well as an in-house social pedagogue.  We have regular days out for carers and children, and participation activities for fostered children and birth children.
