Formally Reading Single Homeless Project. Now we're known as Launchpad. We exist to help vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Reading turn things around.

We provide:

Housing with support. Clean, safe housing is the firm foundation on which all our other services are built.

Homelessness prevention. Vital help for people who don’t live in our housing but still need our support. They might be a family or single parent in a B&B or a single person sleeping on a friends sofa.

There are quite often deep rooted issues why people need our help. Our support is individual and we help with fundamental life skills: IT training, numeracy and literacy, cooking on a budget. And complementary skills to help with confidence building including gardening at our allotment, art and drama.

We also have a Drop-in service where anyone in Reading can pop in for housing advice.  less
