Could you foster in Torbay?
Due to high demand, we are always looking for foster carers in the Torbay area. If you have a spare room and would like to make an enormous difference to a child or young person, fostering might be the career for you. You will need to have resilience, energy, patience and commitment in order to bring out the best in a child and help them fulfil their potential. No specific qualification is required, although some experience in child care is useful, as well as a desire to keep learning.
Why choose Capstone Foster Care?
At Capstone Foster Care we fully appreciate the challenges that fostering brings, and we are there to support you throughout. We provide comprehensive ‘Skills to Foster’ training to ensure that our carers are well prepared for their role. Ongoing training is provided to help you understand your fostered child and teach you how to respond to their needs.
We work therapeutically with children and young people, keeping them at the centre of all we do. We have access to therapists, support workers and an education support worker, who work together to promote good outcomes for our children.
