Preventing Homelessness in Reading

About us

Launchpad is a charity that helps some of Reading’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn their lives around and fulfil their potential.

We provide three services to prevent homelessness in Reading:

We began as a soup kitchen in 1979 and we were known as Reading Single Homeless Project until 2011. Today, we’re called Launchpad Reading. Based in bright premises in central Reading, we provide accommodation, support and education to people in the town who need our help.
