Preventing homelessness in Reading

Our work

Absolutely anyone can find themselves in a situation where they are homeless or at risk of losing their home.

Sometimes all it can take are a few poor decisions, some bad luck or an unexpected change in circumstances. And a housing problem is not always easy to overcome – life can get complicated with things like addiction, debt and mental health problems. Which is why Launchpad exists.

Whatever your situation – whether you’re worried about losing your home, staying with friends, sleeping in your car, squatting or in emergency or temporary accommodation – we can help you turn things around.

Our three key services

Launchpad’s holistic service works in three ways – we prevent homelessness, provide homes and rebuild lives. Our services support individuals, couples and families in Reading who don’t have a stable place to live or are at risk of losing their home.

With your support and generosity we helped over 1,400 people in Reading to get back on their feet in 2018, a figure which has doubled in just four years. To help us continue our vital work, you can make a one-off gift or set up a monthly donation.
