Schools and colleges

We really enjoy visiting schools to share the work of Launchpad with young people, from reception classes through to University students. Assemblies, lessons – you name it, and we’ll adapt our presentation to suit your needs.

The issues Launchpad helps with are close to home for some young people. We hope by raising awareness of the charity and our work, young people will know where to go to get help if they need it.

If you’d like to invite us in or find out more about supporting us, email Ele and Jason fundraising@launchpadreading.org.uk or telephone 0118 929 1146.

Report anti-social behaviour

We want the people we help to be good neighbours whilst living in our properties. But sometimes problems do occur and we want to tackle these as soon as possible. We take all reports of anti-social behaviour very seriously and any information you give us will be treated in confidence. You can email housing@launchpadreading.org.uk or telephone 0118 929 1148 Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. We’ll be in contact within one working day. Outside of these hours please call the non-emergency Police number 101.

Drop-in

Our Launchpad Drop-in is for everyone in Reading who needs housing or homelessness related advice. Come in and we can help on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am-2pm. We can help prevent a problem becoming a crisis.

Businesses

Could you invite us into your workplace so you and your colleagues can find out more about helping us prevent homelessness in Reading? Or perhaps you have a Charity of the Year scheme? We’d love to be considered.

Launchpad could benefit from your specialist skills and expertise – and we can often help companies meet their corporate social responsibility objectives.
