We are an independent fostering agency who work closely with local authorities across England to help care for children and young people who, for whatever reason, can no longer live with their birth parents.
The demand for compassionate and caring foster carers is currently far higher than the availability, which is why we want you to think about applying with Capstone Foster Care to take on a foster placement.
For more information on what is required to become a foster carer, what training and support we offer, other information regarding taking on foster care placements and how you can help Capstone continue to provide a quality fostering service, please see the pages below.
To take the first step on your foster care journey to help children and young people in your local authority – or to ask any other questions – please complete out online form and a member of out team will be in touch. We hope to hear from you soon!
Foster care is when someone other than a birth parent steps into the parental role after the local authority removes the child from the family home.
Being a foster parent can be one of the most rewarding — and important — career choices a person can make. As a foster carer providing care for a foster child or young person, you are changing their lives.
Fostering a child can be a truly rewarding experience, enabling you to change a child or young person’s life for the better. But of course, choosing whether to foster is an important decision – and one of the common questions that gets asked is, how much do foster parents get paid?
Our training programme is extensive and is tailored to meet the needs of caring for children who have had a difficult start in life, in addition to providing you with advice, information and courses to help with you becoming a foster carer.
