We are currently recruiting foster carers in Winchester
Do you live in Winchester or the surrounding area and have decided to explore the idea of fostering? Do you have a spare room(s), can you drive? If the answer is yes, then we would like to speak to you, especially those who would consider fostering Siblings, or could take Parent & Child placements.
Why choose Capstone Foster Care?
As a potential foster carer you will be trained and well prepared for your role. We then offer ongoing training and support to carers so that they are equipped and confident in the work that they do. Support is provided by local supervising social workers and someone is available 24/7 in case of an emergency.
We are also one of six demonstration sites selected to see how social pedagogy would work in foster care in England. This is a very exciting programme which puts participation, empowerment and inclusion at the heart of its practice with both carers and children.
What we look for in foster carers
For a career in fostering, you will need understanding, patience and commitment, as well as vitality, patience, dedication and understanding. You should have the emotional and physical resilience to care for a child and be prepared for a challenge to help a child or young person build a positive future. Fostering can be hard work, but can also be very rewarding.
