1st – Home-Start Reading – supports families in Reading through difficult times, to help parents give their children the best possible start in life. Their trained volunteers, mostly parents themselves, work alongside their expert support team to help families with young children, who are struggling due to a range of reasons. These might include low mood, depression, anxiety, ill health, disability, broken relationships, bereavement, domestic abuse, poor housing or financial hardship. The parents may be feeling overwhelmed and isolated and lack the self-confidence and strategies to break the cycle. Home-Start Reading helps to build their capabilities, connections and resilience, giving children the chance to thrive, have a happier future and enjoy the same opportunities as others. https://www.home-start-reading.org.uk/

2nd – The Reading Ukrainian Community Centre – houses the Berkshire branch of the Association of Ukrainians in GB (AUGB). Since the start of the conflict in Ukraine last February, the Centre has concentrated its activities to support Ukrainians arriving in the UK, while also delivering equipment and humanitarian aid to those on the frontline. Weekly coffee mornings are held at the Centre, giving Ukrainians new to Reading and their host families an opportunity to meet & chat with fellow Ukrainians & members of the community. Additionally we host regular events to provide advice and support around topics such as employment and housing. https://www.rucc.uk/news

It will be easy flat walking (2 miles).visiting places in Reading.

It is planned to last less than 2.30 hours including the walking and there will be time for discussion afterwards as I will finish close to a place where we can go for a cuppa/lunch & loo.
