Service summary

Cornerstone Fostering and Adoption Agency

Cornerstone specialises in providing ‘Forever Families’ caring for a child or sibling group, beyond their time in care, ensuring that they are loved and valued as their own. 80% of those placed by us have now been adopted by their foster carers. We support our families throughout the adoption process and beyond. We also offer Short-Term Placements, Parent-Child Placements and Shared Care. In response to the migration crisis, in partnership with Home for Good, our carers are open to receiving young refugees (Unaccompanied Asylum Seeker minors). Although we specialise in offering permanent homes to children in the care of Local Authorities, we also value and recruit respite carers who are able to step in when long-term carers need a break. All our foster carers get paid, but the amount varies according to what’s involved. And in recognition of the demands of the work, regular social work visits are made, access to 24-hour help is available and monthly training and support days are arranged.
