Get Involved

Cornerstone is dependent on the good will and support of others to be able to carry out our work. You can help us to achieve our aims to help vulnerable and disadvantaged adults through financial donations, donations of goods or through providing your time as one of our volunteer staff.


Cornerstone receives no public funds and is entirely dependent on grants from charitable trusts and individual benefactors. Cornerstone is very grateful to all those who have supported our cause since 1991.

Cornerstone welcomes donations of goods including:

  • Food – we are grateful for all food items however coffee, sugar and corned beef are especially welcome
  • Clothing is particularly useful as it allows us to provide people with suitable clothing
  • Household goods – we make a range of household items available to our clients in our shop

Unfortunately we do not have the ability to collect any donated items so we ask that you deliver them to the day centre.

  • Volunteer - Cornerstone is very grateful to the large team of volunteers who are essential to the running of the centre. Our volunteers take on a number of roles including, serving food and drink, supervising use of the computer suite, supporting clients making phone calls, working in the shop and simply spending time with our clients. Should you be interested in volunteering we recommend that in the first instance you contact us by phone to arrange to visit the centre. Generally, we are looking for people who are able to make a regular, weekly commitment of their time.

Cornerstone is a day centre providing services to adults facing a wide range of social issues including homelessness, poverty, social isolation, poor mental health, drug and alcohol addiction. We operate an open door policy and welcome people from all backgrounds with our aim being to offer support to our clients, improve their prospects and enhance their quality of life.
