Joe summarises his time at Capstone

25th July, 2018

I have been lucky to be part of the Capstone Foster Care, South West Team, with a particular focus on marketing. Although social work and marketing is not going to be relevant to what I would like to study at university, the skills I have been able to develop within the workplace over the last week will certainly help me during my work life.

Capstone Foster Care is a provider of finding fostering homes for children, sometimes with complex needs. To me this is what makes Capstone unique as a fostering agency. Capstone not only provides their carers with basic skills to foster but goes beyond by providing a very high level of support and delivers therapeutic care to both its carers and the foster children they care for.

Over the last week, I have been able to experience every aspect of each integral part of Capstone Foster Care and have learnt about the enquiry process, how social workers operate, how carers are looked after and the administration aspect. All of which have opened my eyes and allowed me to learn about the agency my parents and I work for on a much deeper level. In many ways this experience has taught there is a huge need for fostering families, especially across the country, to help with the ever growing amount of children finding themselves in the care system.
