TO SEE HOW WE WORK AT CORNERSTONE, PLEASE WATCH THIS SHORT FILM BELOW
Cornerstone is a charity supporting the housing, training and community needs of adults without a home and children requiring an alternative provision to school.
Our community and training based approach to developing key life skills has helped more than 80 people over the past five years to live a better quality life in County Durham.
We handcraft quality furniture for the home, garden and commercial projects from our unit in Low Willington, which provides our training environment. Every £9 spent on our furniture provides a night’s accommodation for someone without a home.
“Ron Hogg, Durham's Police and Crime Commissioner
All I've done is give a bit of money and support and the money I've put it in has been returned ten-fold.
They're taking youngsters and giving them skills, confidence and putting them in situations which they haven't been in before. The ability if the young people here is fantastic.
The whole thing is magic. If it stops offending that's brilliant but it's about more than that. Projects like this bring things that money can't buy.
