Due to the increasing number of refugees and homeless people needing a safe place to sleep, Cornerstones is responding to the crisis. The Cornerstone team of staff and volunteers are now putting in place more “Pods” for Cornerstone. These bunk-cabins provide safe, temporary accommodation.
Cornerstone had three Pods already which were introduced last winter. They provide seven beds. With these new pods this vital service will be able to provide even more desperately needed beds to provide a ‘Safe Haven’ for the clients. Homeless people benefiting from the safe Haven will be able to access to food, showers and washing facilities.
Above all they will be welcomed by a caring and supportive team of people committed to helping them. The goal is to work closely with other voluntary organizations and Manchester City Council to help people move onto their own accommodation and make real the city’s Homeless Charter.
