What we do

People who are supported by us in our housing are provided with a dedicated support package for the duration of their journey which includes, for example, an in-house counselling and life skills training programme, and vocational skills training through our successful workshop project which is currently funded by Police and Crime Commissioner for Durham Ron HoggLloyds Foundation, The Tudor Trust, The Big Lottery Fund The Henry Smith Charity, and previously by the Community Action Against Crime Innovation Fund and The Northern Rock Foundation . Cornerstone offers retail training through our mobile stall where we sell the products created in the workshop to small businesses and members of the local community. The stall also acts as an outreach tool to raise awareness and promote our cause enabling us to liaise with the community to gather feedback and encourage social inclusion.
