Capstone Foster Care News

This week, Broden and Fiona from Capstone South East met with the team at Radio Essex to discuss fostering and the need for foster carers in the local area. There is a real demand for carers across the South East and in particular, in Essex. Fiona, our Recruitment Coordinator, did an interview about this on the show this week and you can listen to the full interview, here: https://bit.ly/2BN8BzT 

Broden and Fiona would like to thank the team at Radio Essex for welcoming them!

If you’re considering fostering and would like to know more about what’s involved, give us a call on 0800 012 4004 and speak to us today for more information.

We had a second Bowling event during this February half term, on Monday 18th February, where our children, young people, carers and staff all come together from our Stratford and East London offices for a fun day of bowling at the All Star Lanes in Westfield, Stratford. Using 4 lanes, with 25 of us participating there was a nice level of competition whilst at the same time everyone still had fun and helped each other to get the highest possible scores.

After bowling we all sat down for burgers and chips and the enjoyment could be seen on everyone’s faces. We had lots of lovely feedback from the children who said how much they enjoyed the day. Thank you to everyone who attended, we cant wait to see you at the next events.


On a very wet Monday this February half term, a group of four carers and six children/young people enjoyed a game of bowling at Tenpin, Acton. The lights were dimmed, the music started and the bowling competition began! It was great to see the children, young people and carers competing against each other and it was definitely a lot of fun, with a competitive edge! We finished the activity with lunch in the café, where everyone tucked into a meal and drink and talked about the fun they had and compared scores.

It’s always lovely to see the joy on our children’s and young people’s faces at get togethers like this and we always love to hear their feedback. Here is some from the children and young people we spoke to:

“I enjoyed just about everything, bowling and making friends”,
“I have made a new friend and enjoyed the company of others that are my age”
“I enjoyed the bowling and food”
