Steve Blackwood

Area Director - South

I have now worked for Capstone for over 4 years having started as the Regional Director for the South East in 2018 and two years ago becoming the Area Director for the South Hub which includes Capstone South West, Capstone South East and FosterCare UK.

I am extremely proud to have a fantastic group of foster carers and staff that work tirelessly to ensure that the children and young people placed with us have a positive experience and can live fulfilling lives, while ensuring we have fun along the way. I have never failed to be amazed by the fantastic work that our foster carers do across the whole company.

Registered Manager

 I graduated from Zaragoza University in 1992.

I have since worked with Single Homeless Project in London, then I moved to work for Kent County Council as a Senior Social Worker in the Children in Need team and the Fostering Service.  In my last year working for the Local Authority, I was a LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer) until I happily moved to join FosterCare UK’s big family in November 2018.

MATTS Clinical Director

As an Art Psychotherapist my journey working within the fostering sector began in 2009. Since then, my passion for working alongside children and fostering families has only grown. I feel privileged to support children and young people who have experienced trauma and adverse experiences. 

My role is to ensure that our MATTS (Multi-disciplinary Assessment Treatment & Therapy Service) continue to provide adaptive, responsive, and flexible therapeutic with the children and fostering families at the centre of it all.
