Why Join Capstone Foster Care?
If you have been thinking of fostering, you may already know that there are many fostering agencies seeking foster families. With the choices available, you may wonder which choice you should make. Perhaps you are already a registered carer with an agency or local authority.
There are many aspects that go into creating an atmosphere in any office. Some agencies are large or have grown over time to be large and in doing so, the atmosphere changes. At Capstone, we have the capacity to maintain a local, small-agency atmosphere while our network expands across the country. We also have a depth of experience and a range of experts. The bigger we get, the cosier we remain.
As a foster carer, you open your hearts and homes to children and young people who are unable to live with their birth parent or parents. You are part of a team and you must feel assured that all members of your team are there to offer support at all times. It’s important to us to get things right and we are committed to strive for excellence in everything we do.
Because of this attitude, Capstone always works to ensure that we recruit and train competent and friendly staff and equally, if not more important, we work hard to ensure that we retain our staff for a number of years. Our staff retention, of which we are quite proud, is a large part of how we are able to provide our fosterers with excellent and ongoing training and well-targeted support.
Beyond this, we are known for being well organised and for operating in an ethical and professional manner. Our reputation attracts the type of people who we are able to train as the best quality carers. Our very competitive fostering allowances reflect the quality of foster families we have and it is important to us that we are able to show that we really value our families. We have a staff of 100 who are available to provide dedicated support to more than 500 carers across England.
When you join our team, you join a very caring family. We have social events on a regular basis where our carer family get together just like an extended family of aunt, uncle, cousins, and siblings. You will get to meet other carers and share stories about the joys and rewards of sharing your home with looked after children. You will also find there are several different types of fostering, ranging from a solo placement to sibling groups to a parent and child and therapeutic placements. Each child or young person is unique, with unique personalities and unique needs, the one common factor is that each child or young person needs to be loved and to feel safe.
