Foster carers support group

20th February, 2017

Hi my name is Adeola, I’ve been a foster carer for Capstone for one year now, and I’ve had two placements so far.  

The foster carer support group held on 23 January 2017 to mark the opening of Capstone South  East office at Eastcote was a great success.

What can I say, it was a good turnout, maybe because it was a combination of welcoming us all to the new Capstone office.  The number and combination of attendees was great, different carers with vast experiences sharing their views and bouncing ideas off each other, on how to cope with challenges poised, not only with the looked after children but also with the authority and other professionals.  

As part of the professional support group, Capstone had a Police Officer present to run through a short training programme on rules, guidelines and safe guarding techniques and a thought provoking video narration from a young Adult.

Overall, a very informative, useful session I would encourage all foster carers to always try to attend.   The set up was good, food was great and Capstone staff members adding a personal touch in welcoming each carer.
