Fostering in the North

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

Fostering with Capstone Foster Care 

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.

With over 14,500 children in care across the North West, we work with local authorities, spanning from Manchester City Council and Doncaster Council to Leeds City Council and, Cheshire West and Chester 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 play in the park, enjoy ourselves at adventure playgrounds or go to a local theme park.

Registered Manager

I started my career in 1981 having trained as a teacher and became a social worker initially by accident. I have worked in the local authority for 34 years before joining the agency working briefly with the elderly but predominantly with children and families in various districts of Lancashire. 

I’ve been a frontline social worker for children in need, on child protection plans and for those who are looked after. I’ve also been a supervising social worker before managing both services and then becoming a senior manager. 

I planned to retire when I left the local authority but missed the pleasure and excitement of working with children and families. I feel fortunate to be able to work with an agency that really wants to support carers and help children achieve their aspirations. So here I am still feeling every day is a school day, full of exciting things to learn and wonderful people to meet.

Placement Officer

I am the placement officer for the North Hub and started working for Capstone In January 2020. My role is to find the best possible match for our foster carers and ensure we find children the very best home. I also keep in regular contact with all of the Local Authorities, building up some good relationships across the whole of the North Region. I love to work closely with our foster carers to ensure I give them the support and information that they need, this really helps me make sure we have a good match and enables positive outcomes for our children. There is nothing more rewarding then finding children loving homes
