Preventing Homelessness in Reading

Launchpad Drop-in… opening doors with advice

Come in and we can help prevent a problem becoming a crisis.

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.

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.

Last year we provided advice, guidance and support to over 600 people.
