Fifteen Cornwall is owned by the Cornwall Foundation of Promise (CFoP), registered charity no.1119341.
The Foundation is pivotal to Fifteen Cornwall’s success. For a start it owns the restaurant. It also runs the training programme and looks after the welfare of the apprentices during their time here.
Like the name suggests, The Foundation is in place to give disadvantaged young people in Cornwall a platform to discover their true potential. But there’s a double meaning.
The Foundation is also a promise to these young people that it will do everything in its power to help each one create the productive, successful life they’d like to achieve.
Its principles and thinking mirror the Better Food Foundation set up by Jamie Oliver and whilst Jamie remains the figurehead for the group, a dedicated team in Cornwall runs the CFoP. They do an outstanding job.
Since May 06, the CFoP has enrolled over 120 apprentices. Seventy per cent are still cheffing today. Whether or not an apprentice makes it to graduation, the Foundation works tirelessly and seamlessly to create the environment needed for these young people to flourish.
All we look for is promise!
