Lara reflects on her time with Capstone

3rd May, 2019

My name is Lara, I am a currently studying Social Work at Plymouth University and Capstone Foster Care has been my final practice placement. At Capstone I have been made to feel valued and part of the team, while encouraged to develop my knowledge around attachment and the effects of childhood trauma.

The priority at Capstone is improving the lives of children and young people through finding them stable and nurturing placements. I have had the opportunity to take part in the many training opportunities offered to staff and foster carers, on a variety of subjects to support reparative parenting.

A highlight of my time at Capstone has been working with our foster carers and the young people they support. I have enjoyed meeting talented, resilient young people who are achieving their goals and making plans for their futures.

Through a lot of hard work, commitment and compassion foster carers are providing children with a nurturing environment in which children and young people can thrive. Working with a team of child-focussed social workers and foster carers has been a fantastic opportunity in my professional development.
