We have spent the past 12 years designing a community hub for the Church of St John the Evangelist - a grade A listed building in Princes St at the heart of Edinburgh. We have recently finished building this centre, which involved years of fund raising and taking out a huge loan in order to finance the work.
The Cornerstone Centre is a thriving community hub aimed at charities and social enterprises who wish to have meeting space, presentation space, interview space or simply workspace.
There is a vital need for an affordable space such as this as small charities struggle to survive as it is, and the inflated costs of city centre edinburgh ensures that these groups cannot attain such space.
We break that mold.
due to the costs of the building project, we do not have enough money to purchase the much needed AV equipment and computer equipment required by these groups - we would like to provide a top class sound system for presentations and talks, a video link system for meetings and events, a cctv system for security and computer equipment such as found in any modern day events venue. This is all things that the many groups we assist simply cannot afford and so we would like to be able to provide these vital services.
We assist charities, social enterprises, minorities groups, religeous groups, enviromental groups, individuals and recovery groups alongside standard commerical groups and would like to give everyone an equal footing to be able to show how truly proffesional they all are with top class equipment.
