The Alpha Project piloted their new “Interactive Community Hub” here at Cornerstone earlier today.
This Hub aims to be an easily accessible, direct link to local support organisations including: The Alpha Project, Women’s Aid, C.A.C.E, Well Informed, Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Unemployed Workers Centre, the Cumbernauld Community Forum & the NHS to list a few.
We are swiftly moving forward with plans to add Cornerstone onto the hub so that local residents may find out about Cornerstone and have a quick, easy way to get in touch with us alongside the above mentioned organisations.

Post Family Hub Launch & Moving Forward
Following on from our successful launch of the Family Hub we are now starting to advance our plans for hosting a number of free activities in the near future.
As of right now we have 4 courses planned starting as early as the 29th of September leading all the way to the Christmas holidays. But we hope to have more as we develop this further.
Starting us off is “Bounce Back“. This looks to cover various strategies to “bounce back” from difficult situations. Taking place on the 29th of September from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM.
12 hours that can change your life! The slogan of our 8 week course, Living Life to the Full starting on the 26th of October. Aimed at those who wish to make changes in their life but never knew how. From 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM every Thursday until the 14th of December.
Also in October we have “The 25th Hour – Seize the Day!“.
What if we had an extra hour in every day – how would you use it? Explore how we waste time and how we can be more productive. From 10:30 am – 12:30 pm on Friday the 27th of October.
Leading us in November will be “Dreams, Hopes & Aspirations“. This will look into what your personal hopes, dreams & aspirations are and take it a step forwards by setting goals & achieving them. Taking place on November the 24th from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.
Finally on December 14th from 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm we have a Christmas Celebration for those in the Living Life to the Full Course. As its name implies this is a celebration for those in the course & an award will be given out to each participant of the course to acknowledge their achievements since starting. Family/friends & colleagues are all welcome to attend.
If you are interested in any of these then please contact the Family Hub team either by e-mail at email@example.com. Alternatively you can phone via landline at 01236 739220.

Groundbreaking Project Managed by Cornerstone House Centre
Cornerstone House Centre has been successful in attracting funds from the Scottish Government to make a number of small grants available through the Participatory Budgeting model. ‘PB’ is a new democratic way of involving local people in deciding what is needed for their community. People come together to discuss and decide the types of community actions to be supported from a pot of money.
Cornerstone House Centre invited local groups to apply for grants from ranging from £50 to £2000. Local groups who received funding include: Abronhill Guild of Friendship, Alpha Project, CHRIS Project, Conservation Volunteers, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, Cumbernauld Community Forum, Cumbernauld Community Parents, Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Unemployed Workers Centre, Cumbernauld Venture Sports Club, Cumbernauld Wildlife Watch Group, Cumbernauld Women’s Watershed Group, Glencryan School, Health Issues in the Community, Hope – Local Garden Group, House of Bread, Indepen-dance, Kilsyth Boys Club 2006, Kilsyth Community Church Sports Club, Not on Your at Christmas, One Parent Families Scotland & Play And Learning Support (PALS).
