Cornerstone is now open

Posted 04 September 2017   |   By Verity Calderbank

The Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Linda Holt officially opened the new Stockport Homes Group Head Office to the public on Monday 4 September. 

Joined by two local customers, Alison and Stewart Earp along with the Chair of the Board at Stockport Homes and the Assistant Chief Executive, Sandra Coleing, the Mayor cut the ribbon and declared the purpose built building open.

The reception is open from 8.30am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday, with Windmill Coffee Shop open from 7.30am.  

Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes’ Board said,

We are looking forward to welcoming customers here at Cornerstone, and sharing the town centre space with local residents. The building offers a wealth of facilities including the Windmill Coffee shop, and we hope that this new space is enjoyed by our customers for many years to come.

I am on ESA due to mental and physical, long term health issues. I am unable to ever work. They award points for people who work, volunteer, or are in training. I cannot do any of those, so people who ARE able bodied get more points that I do.
I do get medical points but I still have nowhere near enough total points to ever get rehoused; I have been bidding for two years and at least thirty people are in front of me every week. I am probably never going to get rehoused. It is not as if Im being overly fussy about properties; I cannot go for stairs for example.

I even had a wonderful doctors letter saying that my current home is no longer suitable and also making me more ill, and I only got a measly 10 points. It is unfair that people who CANNOT work or volunteer get less points than those who CAN. I am a clean, quiet and decent middle aged woman, non smoker, no pets or children. I had landlords sing my praises in the past yet this counts for nothing. I also have the most excellent references, yet I am stuck with terrible neighbours and two flights of stairs that I can no longer manage; with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot afford private either as the shortfall in rent is out of my reach.
