December has seen the launch of the new childrens’ services company for Reading – Brighter Futures for Children (BFFC). The company is wholly owned by, but independent from, Reading Borough Council.
Voluntary organisations are invited to showcase their services and activities to the BFFC social care teams in order for us all to work together and forge a strong relationship within the community. There will be a market place event on the 22 January 2019 at Reading Town Hall. If your organisation supports children, young people and/or their families please book a table asap.
There is a great deal to do to reach the standards of excellent service we want for children and young people of Reading, and we know we can’t achieve our aspirations alone. I am very much looking forward to working with you to strengthen partnerships and hope to be meeting many of you early in the new year.
