Caring for our community
Today our lives are run at such a hectic speed, and often we live in communities with little local extended family.
There is much evidence that healthy relationships, and a sense of personal well-being are core to a healthy society. We seek to play our part in East Reading and Wokingham District in helping support a healthy society underpinned with strong relationships in the family and across the community.
The free support we offer is in a number of specific areas:
- Counselling and listening – Do you have worries and feel you have no-one to turn to? We can provide a listening ear for your personal and relationship problems and counselling to help you find ways of dealing with these problems.
- Debt counselling and budgeting advice – Do you need help in managing your financial situation and/or putting in place a plan to settle your debts? Call us for help in handling your financial affairs.
- Woodley Food Store - This is an emergency Food Store for people in a time of crisis.
- REinspired-Woodley – This provides innovative units on Christianity for Religious Education sessions in Woodley schools
