Objectives

With over 40 years experience delivering great care and support, Cornerstone provides tailored, individual packages of care which focus on enabling people with a variety of needs, including learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and complex care needs, to live the best possible life.

We are always flexible and responsive in meeting the ever changing needs of the people we support and work closely with individuals and families to agree what sort of support will work best for them.

Our strategic aims

  1. To become an expert provider of services to people with learning disabilities, autism and complex care needs.
  2. To be the best employer in social care in Scotland.
  3. To achieve stability and sustainability which supports future developments.

Our values

Caring

We feel and exhibit concern and empathy for others. We often go above and beyond. We encourage and actively seek ways to help people fulfil their potential and live the best life possible.

Person-centred

We offer a truly personalised service. We work closely with the people we support, and their families, to determine priorities and to set goals. We are flexible in our care provision and will discuss what we can do to make the biggest difference to the lives of the people we support.

Professional

We offer a high standard of service that meets all regulatory requirements, delivered by qualified, skilled and trained staff. We audit and review our quality and performance regularly.

Pioneering

We strive to be innovative in our solution-focussed thinking and to continue to lead the way in the care sector. We adopt an operating model that provides a clear framework of responsibilities, resources and support for our teams but which does not rely on restrictive, traditional, command and control methods. We aim to transform social care through a culture of trust, mentoring and empowerment; creating safe conditions for our teams to exercise a high degree of autonomy when it comes to delivering high quality care and doing what is absolutely best for the people we support.

Activities

We provide a range of support for individuals with disabilities/additional support needs across Scotland.  This could be providing specialist accommodation on a full time basis for people with more complex needs, to just a few hours befriending a week to help an individual build confidence and make friends. We support individuals of all ages, providing respite days and clubs for children and young people with disabilities, to day care support for older people with dementia.
