Cornerstone has a long term commitment to serve the people of Benwell by working to:

  • Include the excluded

  • Empower the disempowered

  • Encourage the discouraged

  • Celebrate all that is good


Cornerstone Benwell is a community charity in the heart of Newcastle’s West End.

We run events, groups and activities that are of benefit to the residents of the west end with a particular emphasis on the elderly, adults with learning disabilities and disadvantaged families.


We run a pre-loved clothing and home wear shop and support guests with any IT/computer issues giving access and support to help stop technology poverty.


We also run an emergency food bank and pantry and a beautiful little community cafe where we serve healthy and hearty food.


We rely on the support of our community! We can offer benefits, friendship, support and even references if you're applying for jobs.
