Fostering in Tamworth
Capstone has been involved in placing looked after children in foster homes in Staffordshire for several years. Our local office is in Stoke-on-Trent and we are familiar with the culture and society of Tamworth. We work with the local authority of Staffordshire County Council, providing some of the finest foster carers in the town to children and young people that the local authority takes into care.
Tamworth is a great place for children and young people whether it’s a day out at That Fun Place at Jump Xtreme or going to the bowling alley or on some other local adventure. When you are a foster parent, doing what you love to do is your job. You not only get to work from home, you get to work with love and caring for the family around you.
If you have the time, commitment and skills to be a great foster carer, you are the person that Capstone is actively seeking. You can be married, single, male, or female. Our basic requirements are that you have spare room in your home and in your heart and that you are in excellent health.
Our connection with the local authority involves our ability to be able to respond to their immediate fostering needs. There are many types of placements ranging from short term to long term, to respite care and special needs. At the moment, we have a need for carers who have extra bedrooms as sibling group placements may involve two or three (or more) children.

If you have the type of personality that has the patience and ability to assist young parents learn how to care for a baby while remaining unobtrusive, Capstone needs you for this as well. Parent and child fostering is an excellent way to provide a strong start for a young family and help them integrate into the community in a nurturing manner.
If you are interested in becoming a foster carer, talk to your friends and family about it and get their feedback on what they consider your strengths. It is also a great way to spread the word about a lifestyle change you are ready to make. When you make first contact with Capstone, you can ask all the questions you want. Once you begin the application process, a supervising social worker will be with you throughout the entire journey.
Teamwork is at the core of our success in fostering. Every placement is discussed with you in advance and we are closely attuned to any special support we can offer you and your looked after child. Our allowances are generous, covering any costs involved in providing for the child while also rewarding you for your skills.
