Considering fostering in Devon?
We are always on the lookout for suitable foster carers all over Devon, especially in Exeter, Torbay and Plymouth. If you are thinking of fostering Devon based children, we are particularly looking for people who can foster siblings or who support children who have been through trauma. Often these children will demonstrate challenging behaviours.
If you have a spare room available and have the energy, resilience and commitment to offer a safe and nurturing home to a child in need of someone to believe in them, then please contact us.

What our foster carers say
With the support of Capstone we have been able to make a contribution to providing positive experiences in children’s lives. Despite having to deal with sometimes challenging situations and behaviour, overall we thoroughly enjoy fostering and have found it a very rewarding experience.

Why choose Capstone Foster Care?
You will be given extensive ‘Skills to Foster’ training as well as an ‘Introduction to Therapeutic Foster Care’ in preparation for your fostering career. Supervising social workers give structured and safe support to carers, and ongoing training is provided to equip you and give you confidence in your role.
We have activity days and participation groups for children (both fostered and birth children are invited) and have access to therapists, an education coordinator and support workers, with the aim of helping children to rebuild their lives and prepare them for a positive future.
We have ‘preferred provider status’ therefore the local authority will refer children to us in the first instance.
