Story

Cornerstone will be hosting this years Big Sleep Out on Friday, 24th April 2020, at the Xaverian College to support and raise funds for the work of Caritas with the homeless and rough sleepers. 

Your sponsorship will provide shelter and essential services for homeless and destitute people in our care. You can enter as an individual, as a family, with friends, as a team with work colleagues, or as an organisation. The Bishop of Salford John Arnold will also be taking part. We do not set a minimum sponsorship, but we encourage participants to raise as much as they can.

Since 2015 Cornerstone has been running Portakabins that we call pods that serve as a temporary shelter for the destitute, the homeless and the rough sleepers in addition to our Morning Star Hostel and social housing provision.

There are many reasons why someone would end up sleeping rough or becoming homeless: from family breakdown, mental health problems, alcohol and drug problems, to those who are working with a zero hour contract who cannot afford accommodation.

There are too many people with low income but not enough social housing, especially for those who are single and between the age of 18 to 60. Our brothers and sisters who escaped violence in another part of the world in many cases find themselves rejected in the UK. Asylum seekers and refugees who cannot find affordable accommodation often become homeless.
