On Thursday 29th August, some of our South West carers met for a day of sun, sea, sand and dog walking at Uphill Beach, Weston Super Mare.

The whether was kind and after a rather chilly and windy start, the morning brightened up allowing for a few games and stick designs on the beach before taking a well deserved lunch back at the Wharf café.

The day provided an opportunity for our carers to get to know each other in an informal setting with the children forging new friendships… it was great to see!

Capstone foster care value the important role our carers play in supporting, guiding and creating a safe environment for our children in their care. We recognise our carers involvement and influence alongside the importance of being able to spend quality time together as a family. Our carer events provide an opportunity for foster families to get together, build regional networks and most importantly have fun!


“Loved that Capstone took us to Airhop, my foster child and biological child had a blast. They met other foster children and started forming friends. Perfect activity for a Summer holiday.

Wild Place was great too. We got to see lots of animals and more importantly I was able to get to know other carers from across my region collectively sharing and learning from our fostering experiences so far. The kids had a great time together and because they had met before at other Capstone activities during the Summer they were comfortable with each other from the start.

Lots of walking equalled tired kids… best kind of day!” Jemma, South West carer

With no school and a break in routine the Summer holidays can be a challenging time! So our South West team organised a number of days trips that not only kept the children occupied but allowed our carers to unwind, get to know each other and build their regional networks.

Together we visited four attractions across the South West to include AirHop, Wild Place, Noah’s Ark Farm Park and Uphill Beach and with a number of foster families attending more than one event throughout the Summer, fun was definitely had by all!
