Reading Borough Council is inviting voluntary and community groups to two sessions to help shape a new commissioning framework for local services. This framework will set out funding opportunities from June 2018 when the current ‘Narrowing the Gap’ funding arrangements come to an end.

The final set of themes will be determined after the consultation, but the Council will be considering what services will meet local need around tackling poverty, building supportive communities, promoting health and wellbeing, and reducing calls on statutory care services.

The two half-day consultation events will be at the council’s offices on Plaza West on the afternoons of 17 August and 26 September. Further details will be advertised shortly.
