Staffordshire is a great place for children and young people – whether it is riding roller coasters at Alton Towers, a day meeting the big pig and his friends at Amerton Farm, learning about the olden days at Shugborough Hall or simply riding bikes through Cannock Chase! Having the chance to give children and young people opportunities to have a fun and active childhood is massively rewarding; both for the foster carers and for the children and young people that they care for.
Our friends at Stafford FM support us with sharing our message about finding people who are have the time, commitment and skills to be great foster carers.
We are also delighted to be a proud sponsor of Kidsgrove Rangers under 11’s football team!

Foster carers we need
We particularly welcome enquires from those with backgrounds in the health, childcare and social care sectors, who may have experience in supporting those who are more vulnerable. However we do also provide on-going training and development for foster carers to ensure that they are able to effectively care for children and young people who have may have experienced difficulties in their childhood. We are also increasingly asked for “parent and child” placements and foster carers who can support this.
We at Capstone Foster Care are very proud of being able to balance our local support and “family feel”, with the resources and expertise of a larger agency; this means that our foster carers get the “best of both worlds”. As an established fostering agency we cover most regions of England and we have approximately 100 staff supporting our 500 foster carers. From our 14 offices, our local staff team works hard to ensure that they know all of our foster carers on a personal basis. We are also delighted that in all of our regions we are rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted; with the Midlands last inspected in 2012.
