Capstone Foster Care News

This year Capstone South East have gone the extra mile to spread joy and happiness to those in need the most at Christmas. On 30th November, our London team donated their ‘Secret Santa’ fund, to purchase and deliver gifts to a local Samaritan’s Shop in Harrow. As a fostering agency, we are fully aware of the increasing need for mental health services, so in recognition of this, they decided to support the longstanding charity who supports these services for children and adults. The trustee Judith said ‘Thank you once again and please pass on our thanks to all your team’!

In addition, on Tuesday 18th December, the staff from our Dartford office delivered over 70 presents to Demelza House, a local children’s hospice. From staff donations we were able to purchase toys, games, crafts and stocking fillers for the children to enjoy this Christmas.
 
Demelza’s vision is to make life better for children and young people who have serious or terminal conditions. It is an organisation that provides support not only to the children but also to the families who love them. We are proud to support such an amazing organisation and want to wish you all a lovely Christmas!

Well done to both our London and Dartford teams who have shown fantastic kindness and generosity!

This month, our staff and carers from our Heywood office have taken part in this year’s Key 103 mission appeal. We are so proud of how many carers got involved and brought in gifts to the office; we have had so many generous gifts that we have had to put them under our office tree!

Staff and carers were encouraged to donate any gift, providing it was brand new and unwrapped. We have had a fantastic collection which includes books, toys, sweets, games and much, much more.

Thank you to everyone that took part and has helped spread joy this Christmas to many children and young people across Manchester.


For the past three years, our wonderful staff at our Midlands office have made Hampers which are filled with essentials and treats for Age UK. Local organisers then distribute the hampers throughout Solihull and the surrounding area to elderly members of the community who may need cheering up this Christmas.

Well done to all the team!
