Cherishing Life at 463

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

One of the most vulnerable groups of young adults are people with life threatening and life limiting medical conditions. On a daily basis they live with the uncertainty of life itself.

Many have little support or quality provision outside of their family once they have become adults.  They leave the relative security of school and children’s social services and in the adult world face social isolation and a lack of independence.

With no immediate family or anyone to effectively advocate for their needs, they can be left to struggle on alone.

Grand Opening of Vision Care for Homeless People at Cornerstone

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

The optometry service – provided by the charity Vision Care which is funded by Specsavers , was officially opened by Dame Mary Perkins on 30th June.
This valuable service is being staffed by volunteer optometrists recruited through Vision care and will provide a much needed service to the many people who use Cornerstone. In addition to prescribing glasses, the service ensures early detection of eye problems which can benefit from early diagnosis and treatment.
We are indebted to Vision Care and the generosity of Specsavers and its founders for the high quality equipment and the high quality volunteers who will develop this innovative service for the benefit of Cornerstone service users.
