To celebrate the amazing work that foster carers do we held a Foster Carers Lunch for all Foster Carers who supported by the London Hounslow Office. Carers and staff indulged in a delicious curry, whilst talking about their experiences and supporting each other.
We regularly host support groups for carers to attend and we wanted to make this extra special with a buffet lunch and decorations at the offices to bring everyone into a party mood. It certainly worked as carers and staff had a great time mingling over lunch, and sitting in groups chatting.
As well as social workers and admin staff, Regional Director, Marcella Denis was also keen to meet Foster Carers again.
Marcella said; “We really value the hard work that foster carers do. That’s why we are keen to host events throughout the year for foster carers to attend, so we can recognise the work they do. Our support groups are regular meetings that are held with foster carers in groups. These are often good opportunities for foster carers to talk about their fostering experience and support each other, as well as getting expert advice from managers and social workers. I want to thank each and every foster carer who attended our lunch event in Hounslow, it’s times like this that Capstone feels like one big family.”
Foster Carers said they felt it was a good opportunity to meet all members of the London team and they had thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance. If you’re interested in fostering and would like to come along for a chat, or meet us at an upcoming event, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 0203 384 4435 or make an enquiry online. We’d be delighted to meet you next time and talk to you about becoming a foster carer.
