Fostering Agencies in Birmingham
Have you ever thought about fostering? If you live in Birmingham and have a spare bedroom, there are children and young people in your area who need you. The Birmingham local authority takes children into care and provides its own placement service. It also outsources to independent fostering agencies of which Capstone Midlands is one.
Headed up by our Regional Director, Sara, our team will get you through the enquiry, assessment, panel and placement journey with a positive attitude, energy, and determination. You don’t have to be experienced in caring for children to foster a child and you don’t have to be a couple. Single people are needed as well. You need to be in good health and have the patience and personality for being a loving parent to a troubled young person whether you are a single foster parent or not.

Support throughout the process
Our team in Birmingham supports carers across the West Midlands and has a wealth of experience and expertise. We listen to anyone who is thinking about becoming a carer. Each child is different, which is why we need a diverse range of people to provide a safe home and stability for kids in care. We train our carers to do an excellent job and reward them for their success.
Looking after vulnerable children is about supporting them and offering them a chance to rebuild their lives and have more positive outcomes as adults. We think that making memories that last is a good way to do this.
Here are some places that foster families in Birmingham enjoy going with the young people they support:
Drayton Manor Theme Park – Foster carers and staff at Capstone in the Midlands often go to Drayton Manor each August. The thrill seekers head straight for the roller coasters, and we gather together for a picnic at lunch time which for many is the highlight of the trip!
Dudley Zoo and Castle – Elephants, tigers, snakes and lions greet you as you go wild at Dudley Zoo. There is also a lot to learn about the history of the castle. Don’t miss face painting and the land train, which are favourites with the younger children.
Why foster with Capstone?
Capstone Foster Care is a well-established agency operating across most parts of England. We have approximately 100 staff and 500 carers. We have offices across England and each office still maintains the family-friendly feel. We can offer carers the best of both worlds – the resources and expertise of a large agency but with the personal feel and local training and support.
Together, the team, of which you are a part, works out a plan for the child. Your placements will vary from short to long-term fostering but there are support groups, a social worker on call, and full financial support. Many people make a career of being a foster parent.
