Many foster carers make careers of fostering. Being a foster parent can be one of the most important career choices you can make. Providing care for a foster child is life-changing. By you providing a safe home and a caring family setting you are making a huge difference to a child who has been taken into care because of events over which the child had no control.
When local authorities become aware of situations where children and young people are in danger or unprotected in the world, they step in. Usually this is the result of a breakdown in the child’s home situation due to violence, death, addiction or severe medical issues. When the local authorities remove the child from a dangerous situation, they need the support of foster carers who are able to provide a home for the child. Capstone’s local office works with the local authority by providing the qualified foster carer who can provide that home.
Capstone Foster Care is an independent fostering agency, recently rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, with extensive experience fostering in South Yorkshire. We have experienced social workers who are allocated to foster carers. Your social worker is always available to offer support, advice and guidance. We also offer a 24 hour service so are on hand when needed. Foster carers are allocated a supervising social worker, who offers 1:1 support to you and your family.
Capstone Foster Care is a well established fostering agency operating across most parts of England. We have approximately 100 staff and 500 carers. We have offices across England and each office still maintains the family friendly feel. We are also accredited ‘Investors in People.’ We can offer carers the best of both worlds – the resources and expertise of a large agency but the personal feel and local support which most carers really value and appreciate.
We provide generous fostering allowances to our foster carers and all of our placements come to us through local authorities. We cannot tell you in advance what types of children you will be caring for. We can assure you that you will never be alone in providing a safe haven to the child. You will work as part of a team and all the education and training that you need will be provided to you.
