Business Spotlight – Cornerstone

When was your business established?

Cornerstone was established as a not for profit in 1999 and became a Charity in 2006.

Tell us a bit about your business and the products/services that you offer?

We are an Adoption and Fostering Service specialising in hard to place children for permanence e.g. sibling groups, children with special needs, parent and child placements. We are a Christian charity and only recruit Christians as we have a Genuine Occupational Requirement on all posts. We are registered with Ofsted and all of the other relevant bodies the same as any other service but seek to serve the church in what we believe is a mission to support families in their care of the most vulnerable children in our society.

What is your favourite aspect about your business?

My favourite aspect of the business is seeing families approved to become carers for children who are in need and then seeing the lives of everyone involved changed. 80% of all children placed for Permanence are adopted by their forever families compared to the national average of 15% and we have had a ZERO adoption breakdown rate since 1999.

Why did you choose to locate your business at Business Central?

We relocated to Business Central as it is a great facility within easy reach of rail, road and air connections as we have offices in Doncaster and Stirling. Our staff and families are spread throughout the North, so this is an excellent base for us.
