We are looking for foster carers
To foster with Capstone we require that you:
- Are genuine about supporting children and young people to thrive
- Are happy to foster children of all backgrounds, religions and cultures
- Have a spare bedroom for a child or young person
- Have time to foster and flexibility to work round a child’s needs
- Must have a good level of English and be able to advocate for a child as necessary
We have supported many people from the Muslim community with Islamic beliefs and values to become foster carers, and we’ve watched them succeed in building brighter futures.
With the recent crisis in Syria and wars in the Middle East there are more and more children of a Muslim background coming into care. We offer training to carers about supporting unaccompanied and asylum seeking children. This training is available for all carers at Capstone.
It is more likely that a Muslim family may be matched to foster a child of a muslim background and culture, but this is never guaranteed. As part of our careful matching process we do aim to make cultural and religious matches where possible. Our expectation is that carers from the Muslim community must want to support children of all backgrounds. To be a successful foster carer and do the job of a carer at Capstone – you must share the desire to support a child or young person to build a brighter future, this is regardless of race and religion.
Fostering Muslim children with Capstone Foster Care

Moreover, many of our staff are from Muslim and ethnic minority backgrounds. So those staff will be perfectly placed to support you well and to understand you and your needs.
