What we do

Support Model for Adoption (Pre and Post Order)

We have developed a successful new service model in adoption

  • 1:1 peer mentoring
  • Therapeutic parenting training
  • Webinars and Skills workshops

Our solution is User Led, Practical and Replicable and it works

coramImpact and Evaluation in January 2017 stated that Cornerstone demonstrated “an extremely positive impact on adopters”, accelerated placement of children in particular those considered harder to place, prevented placement breakdowns, freed up social worker capacity and generated income to every participant through the external placement of well prepared and therefore sought after adopters.

OfstedCornerstone’s adoption model has been recognised by Ofsted. Cornerstone has supported 4 LAs to improve their Ofsted rating and is cited in a further 2 LAs.

“A recent positive innovation for potential adopters has been the partnership between the adoption service and a DFE funded social enterprise (Cornerstone). This organisation provides mentoring and training for prospective adopters and continues to support them post-approval. There have been 12 mentoring matches made to date, and this offer has been well received.”

“I think Cornerstone is amazing. I genuinely feel like [the mentor] saved our placement from breakdown. We were absolutely in crisis. I think it should be mandatory to have a Cornerstone mentor … to really make a massive difference to people’s lives.”

Attuned parenting training for private sector

Our pioneering work to bring a more reflective approach to parenting children with trauma can have huge benefits to all parents and families.

The techniques and insights we use to build bonds between families with our restorative parenting programme really work and offer parents an alternative to naughty steps, time out and other punitive behaviour management approaches which can drive a wedge between parents and children.

Cornerstone will soon be offering training to all parents wanting to learn more about how to apply a relationship driven approach to their children as well as packages for businesses wanting to support their employees with children to enhance wellbeing and retention.
