Fostering in Dartford
Do you have a spare bedroom, a patient, caring, and compassionate personality? Are you looking for a career where you can make a change in a child’s future? If so, we would like to have a chat with you. We are looking for people aged at least 21 years old, married or single, male or female, gay or straight. Our recruitment efforts in Dartford are ongoing as we have a contract with the local authority to find loving homes for looked after children and young people.
While there are several types of fostering, we have a high demand for carers who can take in a sibling group. This necessitates having more than one spare bedroom. Being able to place brothers and sisters together has been proven to be beneficial to their future positive outcomes. We also need homes for parent and child placements where you help a young mother or father learn essential parenting skills while ensuring that the baby or toddler is safe and protected.
Capstone Foster Care is a well established independent fostering agency operating across the UK with more than 100 staff and over 500 foster carers. Our local offices all maintain a family-friendly feel, thus we can offer our caring parents the best of both worlds – the resources and expertise of a large agency and the personal feel and local support of a small office.
When we were inspected by Ofsted, we were rated as Good, of which we are really proud. This took a lot of hard work and dedication not only from our team but from our foster parents, too. When you apply to be a foster carer, a social worker will guide you through the process from the initial application, through the police and health checks. Through several home visits, we will get to know you and you will get to know us. These visits will be spread out over a few months and offer us the chance to meet members of your household and answer any more questions you might have with a member of our social worker team.
Whether you are new to the idea of fostering or a registered carer interested in transferring to a vibrant agency, we look forward to hearing from you. If this sounds interesting, then please do not hesitate to get in touch – just call 0800 012 4004 to speak to our recruitment team or get in touch using our online enquiry form. A member of staff will be available to answer any of your questions and advise you on starting your fostering journey.
