Do you want to make a difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people? If you do, and if you have a spare room available, talk to us. We are currently looking for foster families in Northampton and surrounding areas to join us at Capstone.
If you are wondering why we need carers in Northampton, here is a figure that might surprise you. In 2016, there were more than 53,000 looked after children needing foster care placements across country. These are vulnerable children who have been removed from their homes, perhaps the only home they have ever known.
The reasons for a local authority removing children from their parents or guardians are typically abuse and neglect. That fact alone tells you a great deal about why we need people like you to help change their lives. Imagine what your dedication, patience, and commitment can do to make a positive change in their future.
