About Cornerstone

Who do we help?

Cornerstone is a day centre providing services to vulnerable and disadvantaged adults. We help people facing a wide range of social issues. Cornerstone welcomes people from all backgrounds and operates a policy of non-discrimination. We strive to provide a quality service to all our clients equally and fairly and to ensure our policies do not discriminate against any group or individual on the grounds of race, religion or belief, colour, disability, ethnic origin, nationality, marital / parental status, gender, sexual orientation or HIV status. In addition, it is our aim not to discriminate on the grounds of age although it should be noted that our services are targeted at adults. We operate an open door policy however our clients typically face one or more issues such as:

  • Homelessness
  • Poverty
  • Poor mental health
  • Drug and alcohol addiction
  • Social isolation

The day centre typically welcomes up to 200 people through its doors each day.

What is our aim?

Our aim, in its broadest sense, is to provide a service that enhances the quality of life of our clients.

Who are we?

Cornerstone is run by a small team of staff headed up by Sister Lucy Dunne. In addition to the staff, we have a large team of dedicated volunteers who are crucial to the running of the Day Centre.

Cornerstone is part of Caritas Diocese of Salford, a registered charity formed to bring together all the work undertaken across the Catholic Diocese of Salford. This organisation is dedicated to helping young people and families in addition to the vulnerable adults served by Cornerstone.
