The next meeting of Reading’s Health and Wellbeing Board is on Friday 11 October 2019 in the Council Chamber, starting at 2pm. The agenda includes a report on Working in Partnership with Health and Social Care to Support Reading’s Most Vulnerable People. The report, prepared following discussions with a range of voluntary organisations in Reading, seeks to:

  • Highlight an increase in the complexity of needs of some of the people supported by local voluntary organisations and the subsequent demand on staff and volunteers.
  • Outline developments to improve partnership working between Reading Borough Council, Berkshire West CCG and voluntary organisations to better support people with complex needs.
