What our carers say

“I’d thought about fostering for over three years before it was the right time to call Capstone. I have a dog and thought, can I foster if I have a dog? I am also over 50, so I thought I may be too old to foster. I was also confused about whether or not I could carry on working if I foster as there is so much conflicting information on the internet. What I found is that I didn’t just have one question, I had many. So I gave Capstone a call. It was the best decision I’ve made, as they tailored their advice to my circumstances. I’ve now been fostering for 8 months and I have a 9 year old boy who I look after. I’d encourage anyone who is wondering ‘can I foster’ to call Capstone and find out if you can foster too.”
