New Homelessness Support Services for Reading

Primary interest
Homelessness

The council is launching its new Homelessness Support Services from 1 September 2018.

The new service will focus on providing immediate and emergency responses for rough sleepers and homeless people, providing housing and support to address the needs of single homeless people, and preventing homelessness.

A launch event is being held on 30 August 2018, between 9am and 1pm, in the Council Chamber. The event will:

  • Introduce new services that relieve and prevent homelessness
  • Offer a chance to network with fellow professionals, across sectors, who support vulnerable and homeless people and rough sleepers
  • Offer taster sessions of the project’s therapeutic programme
  • Showcase customers’ culinary and artistic skills
