Who We Are:


Here at The Cornerstone Centre you will be sure to receive a warm welcome whether you are a first time visitor or a regular user!  Since 2003 we have been serving the community in and around Oakley. The Centre supports people from all walks of life, the young and not so young.  We offer a wide variety of activities and services where you can learn new skills, enjoy some home-made refreshments in our coffee shop and have your laundry washed. For many, this is a place to meet friends and enjoy coffee and cake, for others it provides space to hold birthday parties.




As the world faces the impact of COVID-19 the Cornerstone Centre continues to serve the Oakley community.  We are slowly re-opening the centre to the public while also offering a developing programs, including at-home community coffee mornings, food support and emotional support.  

We will be welcoming people back into the centre to the Cafe over the coming weeks and will be aiming to keep the Centre as COVID Secure as possible.



Due to the ever-changing nature of our program we encourage you to find out what our current program looks like by visiting our Facebook Page.

Get Involved

We have over 40 different volunteers who support the work of the Centre and without their commitment and involvement we would not be able to deliver the wide variety of activities and services. Our volunteers range in age, background and skills.  Their involvement includes helping run sessions for adults with disabilities to serving in our coffee and charity shop.  The Cornerstone Centre is a run by a Charitable Trust so we welcome donations and gifts to help ensure the Centre continues to offer great support to the local community.
