We have a team of highly qualified, professional and motivated staff headed up by our amazing group of directors. Find out more about why they do what they do.
I’ve worked in the social care sector for many years and my passion lies in providing fulfilment to some of the most vulnerable people in society. We have a fantastic, experienced, passionate team who always ensure the child or young person is at the centre of all we do. We are very lucky to benefit from the most comprehensive therapeutic offering for children, young people and carers (MATTS), low caseloads, excellent Children’s Champions, market leading bespoke training and a culture of openness, honesty and integrity.
The most satisfying part of my role is knowing that you and all our staff continually go that extra mile to help children overcome challenges and become confident young adults ready to take on the world.
Outside of work, my wife and I have two daughters, who have me wrapped around their little fingers.
I qualified as a social worker in 2000 and since then my passion has always been in foster care.
My role is to ensure the service we offer our foster carers and children, helps them build the brightest of futures. I remain humbled by the amazing standards of care our foster carers offer children and young people.
The impact that a secure base and a professional team supporting a child can achieve demonstrates the positive impact that good quality care can offer. More recently, the launch of our therapeutic service has enabled us to support our carers as they help some of the most traumatised children.
In my spare time, I have applied the theory of natural horsemanship into my passion for supporting horses with difficulties and have had much success with rehabilitating horses deemed dangerous or damaged.
As an Art Psychotherapist my journey working within the fostering sector began in 2009. Since then, my passion for working alongside children and fostering families has only grown. I feel privileged to support children and young people who have experienced trauma and adverse experiences.
My role is to ensure that our MATTS (Multi-disciplinary Assessment Treatment & Therapy Service) continues to provide adaptive, responsive and flexible therapeutic with the children and fostering families at the centre of it all.
I have now worked for Capstone for over 4 years having started as the Regional Director for the Southeast in 2018 and two years ago becoming the Area Director for the South Hub which includes Capstone South West, Capstone South East and FosterCare UK.
I am extremely proud to have a fantastic group of foster carers and staff that work tirelessly to ensure that the children and young people placed with us have a positive experience and are able to live fulfilling lives, while ensuring we have fun along the way. I have never failed to be amazed by the fantastic work that our foster carers do across the whole company.
I have worked my whole career in the social care sector and qualified as a social worker in 2004. Growing up in a fostering family has given me the drive and passion to want to help other children and fostering families like the ones i grew up with, building brighter futures together. I feel proud to be part of Capstone and to support our fostering families to make the difference in children’s lives.
In my spare time my I love spending time with family and enjoy a spa day and pampering session!
