John Stone

Co- Founder & Trustee Patsy and John set up Children 1st West Berkshire in 2008. They have 3 children and 4 grandchildren and were foster carers for over 20 years. Patsy is very ‘hands-on’ supporting the young residents, the live-in mentor and live-out manager. Patsy and John work tirelessly for the charity every day to date and have great satisfaction seeing its growth and the many successes of the young residents. John did the lion’s share of the initial administration in setting up the charity and continues to work on a daily basis within the charity in a variety of roles, including practical hands-on aspects of the fabric of Cornerstone, and working in the office managing the top level organisation of the charity and the workload of the office staff.
