Celebration for Capstone Staff and Carers for over a decade's worth of commitment

5th March, 2018

Capstone North were pleased to host a small celebration for the carers who had been with the agency for ten years or more! This was a lovely opportunity to thank all the carers for their commitment to the agency but, more importantly, to the young people they have supported during that time. All the carers received a card and some flowers to say ‘Thank you’ and we all chatted about ‘old times’ and how they had enjoyed all the years they have spent as carers. The afternoon was a great opportunity for everyone to reminisce and talk about their successes, sadness - about children who had left them - and joy - for the children they were currently supporting and all their achievements! Additionally, the agency was also able to acknowledge the services of Jo Kelly and Carole Bell (Senior Supervising Social Workers) who have been with the agency for a combined total of 25 years! Thanks to everyone who attended for making it a great day of catching up with old friends and colleagues, as well as reflecting on what has been achieved.   ‘We joined when it was a small premier agency and still feel we’re part of a close knit family and still get the great support from everyone. Fostering to us is challenging, fun and we have great support from Capstone Foster Care’ ‘Loved the chance to meet up with the other long standing carers, who we don’t always get chance to meet It was nice to be recognised for the long service and commitment we have made to Capstone I enjoy fostering with Capstone because ALL staff are warm, friendly and supportive. The training is relevant and well-presented and we feel part of “ the family” that is Capstone’- Jacqui Cummings, carer. I enjoyed it very much, it was nice seeing people I hadn’t seen for a long time. It was also very nice to know that we are all valued and appreciated. I enjoy working for Capstone, knowing I’m offering a secure and caring home to children with a difficult past to move forward.- Phyllis Aspinal, Carer.
