Considering fostering in Dorset?
Are you based in Dorset and have been toying with the idea of fostering, please read on. If you have a spare bedroom available and are able to offer the time, patience and commitment required to look after a child in need of a caring home we would love to hear from you. In the Dorset area we specifically need carers who are able to take a parent and their child, or perhaps able to foster a sibling group.
Why choose Capstone Foster Care?
You will be part of a close-knit network of carers, excellent all round support. You will have access to an experienced social worker, therapists, a social pedagogue, intervention worker and 24/7 emergency support and management back-up.
In preparation for your fostering career you will receive comprehensive training in ‘Skills to Foster’ as well as an introduction to ‘Therapeutic Foster Care’, following by ongoing training. There are days out for carers and children and we encourage children to participate in activity days and also offer training to birth children.
