Cornerstone – Homeless Shelter in Manchester

Who are they?

Cornerstone is part of Caritas Diocese of Salford, a registered charity formed to bring together all the work undertaken across the Catholic Diocese of Salford. This organisation is dedicated to helping young people and families in addition to the vulnerable adults served by Cornerstone.

Who they help?

Cornerstone is a day centre providing services to vulnerable and disadvantaged adults.

Why are we collecting for Cornerstone?

The Senior Student Council looked in to it various charities and they spoke to lots of different people across the area. They chose Cornerstone as they truly believe it is a worthwhile cause as it supports people who are facing a wide range of social issues. They want to give back to the community that they live in and are determined to make a difference this year.

‘At the start we were just providing a sandwich, drink and time to people in need. Over time, Cornerstone has developed into something we could never have imagined it would become, serving hundreds of clients daily with the loyal support from around 150 volunteers, donations from all sorts of individuals, schools, churches, charities, religious groups and commercial organisations. It exists today because of the kindness and support of so many, and will keep on serving, trusting that God will, as ever, provide’.

What do we need to collect?





Please help us to make a difference!
