Capstone Foster Care have been building brighter futures for children by supporting foster carers for over 10 years.
With our 100 foster carers in the Midlands working together with our expert team of staff, we have been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. This is a great achievement by our staff and carers and a testament to the great work they do to make a difference to the lives of children and young people.
With over 10,500 children in care across the Midlands, we work with local authorities, spanning from Shropshire Council and Birmingham City Council to Derby City Council and Warwickshire County Council, to place children with our foster carers and their families to provide a secure and stable home.
As a member of the Capstone Foster Care family, our foster carers are provided with expert advice and guidance as well as training and support, 24/7 365 days.
Being part of the family means you automatically become part of our support groups because we know how important it is for our foster carers to get together and for our children and young people to feel part of the Capstone family. As one big happy family, we even have time to visit local theme parks like Drayton Manor Theme Park and Alton Towers - but not everyone’s a thrill seeker so picnics are always great too.
“Children make good progress from their starting points and enjoy safe placements with foster carers who meet their needs well. Foster carers are well supported in caring for the children placed with them.”
“The panel stage was daunting, but we really shouldn’t have worried as the members of our panel made us feel as ease! It definitely felt like everyone at Capstone was supporting us.”
“During the process, and as foster parents, we had prepared for some level of discrimination being a same-sex couple. However, throughout our 5 years as foster carers, we have been shown nothing but respect and professionalism by the families of looked after children and professionals that we have worked with at Capstone Foster Care.”
“Being part of a fostering family has taught me many things, but that particular day I realised how lucky I had always been and have been thankful for it ever since.”
“My experience at Capstone as I went through my early 20’s motivated and encouraged me to want to do better for myself, and also the children entering the care system and in need of protection.”
I’m Erin Campbell and since April 2021 I’ve been the Regional Manager at Capstone Foster Care. I’ve worked in fostering since 2009, making sure our young people are safe alongside getting the support right for our children, young people and their families are my priorities. I’m really passionate about getting to hear the voices and opinions of our children, young people and foster carers so that we can provide the best possible service.
