Preventing Homelessness in Reading

Launchpad Drop-in… opening doors with advice

Available to anyone in Reading who needs housing or homelessness-related advice. You could be sleeping on a friend’s sofa, not sure how to find accommodation, worried about rent, have landlord problems, need benefit advice or help with drug or alcohol misuse. Come in and we can help prevent a problem becoming a crisis.

Our friendly trained team will listen and give individual, confidential support. They can help with form filling, provide access to a computer and telephone and help you take control and resolve your issues.

You don’t need to be referred. Just come along – the service is totally confidential.
