Capstone Foster Care is an independent fostering agency with 16 local teams supporting 600 foster carers across England. We work towards building brighter futures for all stakeholders. This includes looked after children, fostering families, Capstone staff, anyone thinking of fostering and our local authority partners.
Providing a robust fostering service to support local authority teams is really important to us and we aim to provide a high quality service. We endeavour to understand the needs of each local authority and work in partnership with you. Based on your needs we are actively looking for foster carers to support teenagers, parent and child and sibling groups across most areas of England.
We recruit a range of foster carers and we work hard to enhance their skillset so they can match a variety of needs and placement types. By working alongside a team of therapists and specialists, we can provide effective training to all foster carers, for all core subjects and more.
What Ofsted say:
“The agency provides foster carers who are experienced and skilled to look after children with complex needs. There is a placement officer who makes carefully considered matches based upon a sound knowledge of the experience, qualities and skills of each carer and their family. Specialist training is provided when this is needed to meet children’s particular needs, such as working with autism, child sexual exploitation and Makaton training.”
What a young person said:
“People say being in care is a bad thing, but when you’re surrounded by such loving, kind and caring people like you, it is everything I could wish for, to be in a family like yours. We have our bad and our good days, some worse than others, but we will always stick by each other, no matter what. All the family are all so supportive, and caring. No-one said our journey would be bad and no-one said it would be good. If you ask me it has turned out perfect.”
