Fostering in the Midlands

Capstone Foster Care have been building brighter futures for children by supporting foster carers for over 10 years.

Fostering with Capstone Foster Care

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.

Ofsted Report:


“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.”

Sara Chambers-Ross

Area Director - North

I’ve worked in fostering for over 20 years and it is such a privilege to work with the fantastic team we have at Capstone Foster Care.

It’s my responsibility to ensure our processes and services are streamlined, consistent and accessible for all of our stakeholders – foster carers, children and young people, staff and local authorities.

By delivering a local service we are able to meet the local needs our foster carers and children while ensuring the support of our national team is available to everyone, wherever you are. We are big enough to have the resources we need and still small enough to care in a family feel setting.

In my spare time I enjoy watching live music and volunteering at local community events. I am also kept pretty busy with the antics of my two naughty rescue dogs; Frankie and Benni.

I’m the Registered Manager based in Birmingham. My role is to make sure that the Agency fulfils its responsibilities, which are set out in legislation, regulations and statutory guidance. I have worked in the independent fostering sector for 17 years undertaking many roles, including Supervising Social Worker, Placement Manager and Project Manager. I joined Capstone Foster Care in October 2017.

Fostering Recruitment Advisor - Midlands

I have worked in the foster care sector for over 5 years now and enjoy meeting new people as part of my role as the Fostering Recruitment Advisor. I support our potential carers through the initial enquiry and initial visit stages and there’s nothing more rewarding than when they become approved foster carers and help children and young people build brighter futures.

Placements and Duty Coordinator - Midlands

I started with Capstone as a team leader in the recruitment team giving advice to people who were interested in becoming foster carers and helping them through their assessment which I did for about 2.5 years. I now work as a Placements and Duty Coordinator and have been with Capstone since 2017. Working in the placements team is a rewarding role as I help to find the matched families with children who are referred to us from the local authorities.
