The Ofsted achievements continue at Capstone, with the Midlands being our latest region to achieve Good in an Ofsted inspection. We are delighted with this achievement, and here is what Ofsted have to say about us:

  • Children live with committed foster carers. As a result, children benefit from stable placements
  • Committed staff support foster carers very well. Consequently, carers feel valued.
  • Children make positive progress in their education, and their health improves
  • Staff and foster carers receive ongoing training in safeguarding and protecting children.
  • Foster carers are well supported in caring for the children placed with them… One foster carer explained that this support has given them the ability ‘to think outside the box, which has been really helpful’.
  • Children enjoy a wide range of activities. A child said, ‘I go out to lots of exciting places. We’re a real family.’
  • Foster carers feel well supported. Managers and staff value all family members and consider their views. A foster carer said, ‘They really care about the well-being of the foster family.’

Regional Director, Sara Chambers Ross, said:

“I am really proud of our Ofsted achievement and the feedback we have received. The team at Capstone Midlands work hard every day to support foster carers to build brighter futures for the young people in our care. I want to thank all members of the Capstone Midlands family for your contribution and efforts in achieving this fantastic result.”


 We are delighted to tell you we have arranged a Costco membership for all foster carers and staff within the Capstone Foster Care Group.  This will give you significant benefits as a ‘Trade’ member.

Costco has 24 stores throughout England, 3 stores in Scotland and 1 in Wales.  All are open 7 days per week and sell almost everything you might wish to buy at significantly lower prices than offered in normal retail shops.  They regularly issue SAVINGS offer booklets at different periods throughout the year.  A further bonus… bigger savings!

Here are foster carer friends Julian and Shauna making the most of their membership!



Well done to Debs and Ally from our Midlands team who recently completed the Memory Walk for the Alzheimer’s Society in memory of Debs’ mum, Sylvia King, and for other friends.

Debs said:

“My family and I recently completed the Alzheimer’s memory walk. It’s a charity close to my heart as my mum had Alzheimers and dementia. As as a group we raised £1,015 in total, It was a fantastic family event.”
