What is Cornerstone?
Cornerstone supports people who are marginalised, homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The service is based on early intervention and prevention, operating a housing first approach where this can be achieved. This transitions a person or household, wherever possible, from homelessness into immediate stable housing solutions.
In other circumstances we may source short/long term housing and provide the necessary support to sustain the tenancy.
What services does Cornerstone provided?
Support workers connect with eligible people to identify their needs. They can help find ways to remove barriers preventing sustainable independent housing. They do this by providing or referring to local community organisations for the following services:
- access to accommodation (including crisis)
- employment services
- mental health support
- referrals to drug and alcohol services
- budgeting and more.
The length of support we provide depends on the individual’s needs.
Who can access Cornerstone?
To be eligible for the service you must be over 18, homeless (couch surfing/sleeping rough/transitioning) or at risk of homelessness.
