We are proud to be supporting 100 foster carers in the North West, together with our expert team of staff, we have recently been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. This is a wonderful endorsement of our staff and carers and, the amazing work they do together in helping children and young people.

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 play in the park, enjoy ourselves at adventure playgrounds or go to a local theme park.
