Story

Cornerstone has been providing services for the homeless, the destitute and the vulnerable since 1991. Since winter 2015, the day centre expanded to providing Safe Haven night services with three portacabins - or 'pods' - to house up to 14 homeless people during the cold winter nights. The next year, as the demand for shelter increased, Safe Haven night services continued to open all year round, and by December 2018 Cornerstone's Safe Haven has 10 pods with capacity to provide shelter and food for up to 26 people all year round.

The cost to run this 24 hours services is not cheap. With 10 pods, Cornerstone's Safe Haveen needs £130,000 per year - this is not included the maintenance, electricity and heater.

Therefore today we are appealing to anyone with generous heart to support our mission in providing not only shelter but also nurturing staff to help these people back on their feet.
