Can you help young people in Buckinghamshire?

Have you ever wanted to do something extraordinary and make a difference not only to your own life but many others too? Well, fostering may be the answer for you! Fostering with Capstone can provide you with a fulfilling career as well as giving you the opportunity to change the lives of so many young people in your local area.

There are around 500 children* across Buckinghamshire that have been taken into care for a variety of reasons – some may be just for the short-term whilst the issues are resolved at home, others may need longer term care. These children and young people urgently need foster carers who can provide them with loving and secure home.

There many misconceptions about who can foster. The fact is that if you have a spare room, are aged 21 or over, are in good health and have the time and patience to offer, you may be eligible to foster.

These children and young people all have incredible potential, but they need your support to help them be the best version of themselves. Our foster carers often tell us that fostering has been the best decision of their life and are so happy that they have started their journey – the only regret is that they didn’t start it sooner!

From the very first moment you join Capstone, you will have heaps of help and training to enable you to be the best foster carer you can be. You will also have access to other foster carers, as well as 24/7 local support. Not only that, you will also receive a weekly allowance between £400-£650 depending on the type of foster care placement. However, the greatest benefit of all is knowing that you are making a huge difference to someone else’s life.  

If you are interested in finding out more about fostering in your local area, get in touch with us today, here. Start a fulfilling and rewarding career as a foster carer and join our growing family as we continue to build brighter futures.
