We work very hard at maintaining the family feel at each of our offices. If you are interested in becoming a foster carer and making this your career Capstone’s dedicated team is available to talk to you about what is involved in making this decision. Our local staff will get to know you personally and give you all the advice and support that you need.

The primary goal of becoming a foster parent is to build brighter futures for children who can no longer live with their birth parents, which affects their natural chance at a positive outcome in life. This can be the result of a wide variety of events, ranging from death or severe illness, to violence or abuse. The child may be in foster care for a short time or a long time.

When children are removed from their homes, local authorities step in and make the first decision which is whether to return the child to his or her home or to place the child in foster care. This is where Capstone Foster Care enter the picture. Capstone has a great reputation among our numerous local authority clients for providing a high quality service, which means that they like to use our foster carers.

There are many different types of fostering and there is a child or young person right now who needs a safe and secure placement with foster parents who can help them find the bright future that should be their birthright.

We already train and support almost 600 carers so we have enormous experience of knowing how best to look after you. As a foster carer, you will have regular interaction with a social worker who will support and assist you. If you ever have a problem outside of our normal office hours, an experienced professional is at your service 24 hours a day.

You will also be offered training every year on a number of topics that will help you become a better carer. You will be able to get to know other local carers in your area so that you can help each other on your fostering journey.

Capstone offers you the resources and expertise of a larger agency but also maintains the local, family feel and personal touch that our carers really appreciate. We are always looking for new foster carers, so please do contact our friendly fostering advisors to discuss any questions you may have.

In case you are wondering who can foster, here is some useful information. Your marital status is not a factor. You can be single, married, in a civil partnership, gay or straight. The only age requirement is that you be over 25 and even this can be lowered to 21 if circumstances warrant it. A health and police check is conducted and your home will be assessed to make sure you have room for a foster child.

Want to become a foster carer? Why not call today, talk to one of our knowledgeable and dedicated members of staff who can answer any question you may have, and join us in building brighter futures.
