Fostering in Luton
Could you start fostering in Luton? Capstone Foster Care is looking for new foster carers in the Luton area and, if you are over the age of 21 and are interested in helping children and young people in the local area, then we want you to consider joining our team and becoming a foster carer. Capstone Foster Care has been working in Luton for many years and have a close working relationship with Luton Borough Council; providing extensive and vital foster care support for when foster placements are required.
There are many benefits to fostering in Luton with Capstone Foster Care. To start, we’ll provide you with all the information, training and support you need to become a foster parent – we don’t expect you to be an expert straight away! As well as this, you will receive a competitive weekly fostering allowance. This payment is provided, not only to help cover costs but also as a reward for your dedication to your fostering role. The value of these allowances will vary depending on the types of fostering services you provide – click here to learn more. You’ll also have access to a provision of respite days throughout the year.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, then you may be wondering if you’re able to foster. Capstone Foster Care is actively looking to build a diverse fostering team and so we accept carers from all different walks of life. As well as a loving and patient look, all we ask is that you are in good health and have a spare room in your home. This last part is the most important as a spare room acts a safe and secure refuge for a looked after child or young person and is vital to a positive care experience. We don’t discriminate based on age, gender, race, faith, whether you’re LGBTQ or any other aspect – our main interest is whether you are able to provide the quality care services that are in ever-growing demand across the UK.
While many of our applicants are completely new to the world of foster care, we are also interested in hearing from experienced foster carers. Whether you’re simply looking for a new agency or are moving across the country, there is a place for you among the Capstone Foster Care family.

If you want more information, or to start your fostering journey, then please get in touch with our friendly Luton office staff today. You can give us a call on 0800 012 4004 or, if you prefer, you can fill out our online contact form. No matter whether you’re looking to take on a standard long or short-term placement, or could provide a more specialised service such as sibling group or parent and child care, then we can’t wait to welcome you to the Capstone family.
By working together, we can make a real difference to the lives of children and young people in the Luton area.
