“We feel very proud and privileged to be foster carers for Capstone. We know that we are valued and cared for and this is hugely important when looking after a young person in care. Capstone is like one big extended family for us, we know if times get tough, we will get the support we need and when times are good, together we celebrate our successes.
We also get to attend lots of therapeutic training which is not only interesting but helpful in our day to day lives. For us, it is all the above that helps us to be the best foster carers we can be and this in turn helps us to make a big difference in the lives of children and young people.”
Kerry and Nathan have been fostering for 3 years and are supported by our team in Devon. They’ve attended lots of training and have been able to support children with various needs and behaviors, to get through a tough time. We think they’ve shown lots of resilience and patience and they’re always open to learn new ways to best support the young people in their care. We really value the commitment from Kerry and Nathan not only in their fostering task, but also in their continued actions to help us find more people to foster children in need.
We recently sent Kerry and Nathan a hamper to let them know we think they are great too.
Kerry said: “Thank you for this gift, it’s so kind, we really appreciate it. This hamper will be great for a family night watching a movie and spending some quality time together”.
