Capstone Foster Care is an independent fostering agency, passionate about making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. We have 15 offices across England which has helped us to support our foster carers to build brighter futures for the last 10 years and we hope to welcome you to our family for the next part of our journey.
There are many myths around becoming a foster carer, many unfounded. To be eligible to foster, you need to be 21 or over, have a spare room and be in relatively good health.
· Be married, single, divorced or in a civil
· Be LGBTQ+
· Rent or own your home
· Be of any ethnicity, race, religion or culture
· Be a parent or not
· Have a disability
· Have pets
Being a foster parent can be one of the most rewarding and important career choices a person can make. As a foster carer, you are helping to change the life of a child or young person by welcoming them into your home and family, whether it be for a short or long period of time.
As a Capstone carer, you will receive all the necessary training and advice to help you. You become part of the family that works together to give young people a chance at achieving a successful outcome in life. You will also receive a competitive, weekly allowance per child and 24/7 support will always be available, so you’re never alone and will never have to make any big decisions by yourself.
If you would like to make that first step or want some more information, then please contact our recruitment team so we can have a chat and answer your initial questions. You can reach us on: 0800 012 4004 or visit: www.capstonefostercare.co.uk.
