Last year David and Tim ran for the Centre in the Reading Half Marathon and raised over £2000. Do you know of anyone who might be willing to run for us this year?

Reading Community Learning Centre is a charity that helps ethnic minority women and their families who live in Reading. We reach out and empower isolated and vulnerable women to grow their skills, confidence and independence. We do this through learning, support and friendship.

Most of our women are migrants who speak little or no English and have limited experience outside their home, and we attract 300 learners each year from 24 countries.

We provide:

  • free and informal non accredited English conversation, reading and writing, IT, sewing, health, beauty, confidence building, and job preparation classes
  • an in-house volunteering programme
  • information, advice and guidance
  • an Ofsted accredited crèche so women can access our services and not struggle with childcare.
