We are currently recruiting foster carers in the Somerset area
To be a foster carer you need energy, resilience, patience and commitment to provide a safe and nurturing home for a vulnerable child or young person. If you have a spare room available, you could make a huge difference in a child’s life by helping them to rebuild their life.
We are particularly looking for carers in Weston-Super-Mare, Trowbridge, Taunton and Bath.
Why choose Capstone Foster Care?
We offer excellent training and support to you as you will be an integral part of the ‘Team around the Child’ building better futures for vulnerable children and young adults. On call support is available 24/7.
We have very positive working relationships with all of the Local Authorities in the area and have successful tenders in place, which means we are one of the first to be considered when matching a child to a foster carer.
