"Over the past four years on the charity committee at Morgan Stanley, I have had the pleasure of working with Cornerstone by organising and providing volunteers for events.
Volunteering at Cornerstone is varied, from painting and decorating, to gardening, building greenhouses and much more. We have been involved in it all! Myself and the other volunteers find working with Cornerstone very rewarding. One memorable moment for one of our staff involved painting and decorating a house for someone Cornerstone supports. The staff there mentioned that for many years before moving into the Cornerstone house, the individual had been living in a facility where they felt they had no sense of ownership or that it was their own home. Painting the room of the person Cornerstone supports in the colours and style that they wanted, gave some real satisfaction to our team. It was very rewarding to know that the new resident would enter knowing that it was their room.”
Each year we launch our Global Volunteering Month, which runs between May-July. This is a way of giving back to the communities where we live and work."
