About us

Although Reading is a prosperous town, 24% of children here live in poverty.

Each year we support around 100 local families where parents of young children are struggling due to a range of social and health challenges. We help them build their confidence, capabilities and resilience, giving children the chance of a more secure future with the same opportunities as their more fortunate peers.

Here’s how we help:

  • We match families with a dedicated, fully-trained volunteer. Mostly parents themselves, they spend a few hours a week with the family, usually in their home, helping in any way they need.

  • We run Family Group sessions in Whitley and Ranikhet, two of the most deprived areas of the borough. These enable parents and children to benefit from socialising with each other as well as the opportunity to get support from our staff in a neutral setting.

  • We offer low-key mental health support to new mums with our Mums in Mind courses. The sessions create a safe, supportive environment where emotionally vulnerable mums can connect, build trusting relationships and support each other.

  • More recently we have begun offering antenatal parenting courses, aimed at expectant mum and dads, to prepare them to be confident and capable parents.

All of our services are free of charge. We receive no statutory funding so we depend on local donors to keep afloat.

We need your help to continue our work empowering vulnerable families in Reading, to give children the best possible start in life.

Thank you for your support and good luck!
