Capstone Foster Care have been building brighter futures for children by supporting foster carers for over 10 years.
With our 100 foster carers in the Midlands working together with our expert team of staff, we have been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. This is a great achievement by our staff and carers and a testament to the great work they do to make a difference to the lives of children and young people.
With over 10,500 children in care across the Midlands, we work with local authorities, spanning from Shropshire Council and Birmingham City Council to Derby City Council and Warwickshire County Council, to place children with our foster carers and their families to provide a secure and stable home.
As a member of the Capstone Foster Care family, our foster carers are provided with expert advice and guidance as well as training and support, 24/7 365 days.
Being part of the family means you automatically become part of our support groups because we know how important it is for our foster carers to get together and for our children and young people to feel part of the Capstone family. As one big happy family, we even have time to visit local theme parks like Drayton Manor Theme Park and Alton Towers - but not everyone’s a thrill seeker so picnics are always great too.

“Children are central to the thinking of their foster carers and staff in the agency. There are regular opportunities for children to share their views about their care.”
“The panel stage was daunting, but we really shouldn’t have worried as the members of our panel made us feel as ease! It definitely felt like everyone at Capstone was supporting us.”
“During the process, and as foster parents, we had prepared for some level of discrimination being a same-sex couple. However, throughout our 5 years as foster carers, we have been shown nothing but respect and professionalism by the families of looked after children and professionals that we have worked with at Capstone Foster Care.”
“Being part of a fostering family has taught me many things, but that particular day I realised how lucky I had always been and have been thankful for it ever since.”
“My experience at Capstone as I went through my early 20’s motivated and encouraged me to want to do better for myself, and also the children entering the care system and in need of protection.”

I am the fostering recruitment advisor for the Midlands. I have over 7 years experience within fostering and love the job I do. My favourite part is meeting new people and guiding them through their fostering journey.
I’ve worked for Capstone Foster Care since January 2017, my first role within the company was a Placements Officer covering the Midlands region. I then went onto cover the North region as well as the South East.
I’m currently the Area Placements Manager for the North Hub which covers the Midlands, North and Excel regions, my role is to oversee the placement service of the teams within the North Hub with our carers and children at the heart of this. This has given me and my team the opportunity to work closely with our amazing foster carers up and down the country, matching some of societies most vulnerable children with our carers. Every young person deserves the chance to reach their potential, to live in a safe loving home making a genuine difference to their lives, this is something we do every at Capstone Foster Care.
In my past time I love following a variety of sports which include Boxing, Formula 1 and Cricket but Football is what I follow closest, I’m a huge Liverpool FC fan.
I am the placement officer for the West Midlands. There is nothing more rewarding than finding looked after children loving families. I receive daily referrals from the Local authorities for children in need of a home and I try and match these with our foster carers. I have only been in this role since May 2021. Previously I have worked as a manager of a Childrens residential home.
Hi, I’m Rachel - a Placement Officer who works remotely covering the North Hub of Capstone Foster Care. This role gives me the opportunity to work across the Midlands, North and Excel Fostering.
I have plenty of experience as I have been a Placement Officer since 2015 but joined the Capstone Group in January 2022. I enjoy working as a Placement Officer as it means that I get to speak to lots of foster families and local authorities and help to find children & young people the homes that they need. It is great when I get to hear about placements that are really making a difference to young people’s lives, and I am proud to be part of the initial matching process in anyway I can.
