Capstone Foster Care News

Capstone-HouseWe know that for some people it’s really important that you have a face to face conversation about fostering. That’s why we do our best to get to different venues and events so we can give out good advice about fostering. In November we will be at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke, to give advice about fostering to anyone who is interested. Meet us on the days below to find out more:

Tuesday 18th November

Thursday 20th November

Tuesday 25th November

Thursday 27th November

We look forward to meeting you on the day, but if you can’t get to us then, please call us on 0800 012 4004 and we’ll talk you through the process. If you like we can also arrange an informal chat with you another time, over a cup of tea!

Congratulations to everyone who attended the Skills to Foster course at our offices in the South East. The training is a great tool for anyone who has applied to become a foster carer, to find out more about it before they become approved foster carers.

At the end of the day, in completion of the training, everyone who attended received a certificate to demonstrate they had participated, and passed the training. If you are interested in attending Skills to Foster, even if just to find out more about what fostering is, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Organising fun things to do is really important to us. That’s why we organised a trip to Thorpe Park for foster carers and children we support. it was a great opportunity for carers and young people in foster care to meet up and have some fun at the theme park in Surrey. Just like fostering it was a great day, with lots of ups and downs!

We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day for 76 foster carers and children to join us for the exciting day of thrills and spills. The most fearsome ride was Stealth, a mean twisting beast of a ride that catapults you from 0-80 miles per hour in under 2 seconds. Once locked into your seat there is no escape. Although only lasting 18 seconds, it is an adrenalin packed ride that will make you weak at the knees! Our very brave regional director, Marcella Denis took the Stealth challenge, and survived!

There were plenty of other fun things to do too. Lots of the children we support took a spin on the traditional fairground tea-pots or the dodgem cars, but others headed for more thrills and spills on one of the tallest water rides in Europe, the ‘Tidal Wave’.

Marcella Denis, Regional Director for Capstone Foster Care said; “We organise trips and activities for young people and foster carers throughout the year. It’s just a way of saying thank you to the foster carers we support, as they all do an exceptional job. Helping young people to experience fun activities is very rewarding for us too.”
