Preventing Homelessness in Reading
At Launchpad, we strive to prevent homelessness in Reading by helping some of the town’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
By providing homes, tailored support programmes and a drop-in centre, we aim to get our clients back on track, help them rebuild their lives and ultimately ensure that everyone has a home where they feel safe and secure.
But it’s not always easy to get back on a stable path. That’s why Launchpad exists. We help people in Reading turn things around.
With your support, we help over 1,200 people across all of our services every year.
Wooden Spoon is the UK's leading grant-making charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged and disabled children and young people through rugby.
We are one of the country's largest funders of respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds, sports activity areas and community based programmes in the UK.
Inspired by our rugby heritage, we've been able to help over a million children and young people through our life-changing projects since we were founded in 1983.
But this still isn't enough. With numbers of UK disadvantaged children anticipated to reach an all time high in 2015, we need your help to raise over £4 million over the next 12 months.
With no Government funding, we rely on the commitment and enthusiasm of people like you. Our volunteers based all over the country work tirelessly to support andfundraise for us and we ensure that every single penny they raise stays in their own community and funds projects and causes local to them.
