Since being founded in 1980, we now provide a range of services including supported living, community support, mental health services, domiciliary care, respite services, children’s play schemes and transition services for young people.

Our highly trained, professional staff believe in the potential of every person we support and have the expertise and experience to enable the people we support to enjoy a valued life.

At Cornerstone our vision is:

"To meet and exceed the expectations of our customers, particularly the people
we support."

Cornerstone’s Glasgow services were established in 2000 to provide support to individuals in their own homes. We now provide support to over 150 individuals and
employ almost 80 people who are committed to improving the lives of others.

Our services are designed to be flexible to meet the individual needs of the people we support, maximising their independence and supporting them to build relationships and maintain social networks. Our services include:
