|What we do||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. This 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 1,000 people in Reading to get back on their feet last year, a figure which more than tripled in just five years. We are collecting toiletries for clients accessing the SWEP project in Reading. SWEP is called by Reading Local Authority when the weather is very cold running from November to March and clients are given a safe and warm bed in B&B accommodation. Launchpad's role this year is to provide refreshment and toiletry packs for clients.|
