  • see that their town is a great place to grow old
  • make and keep new friends
  • have help and support to keep their independence and dignity

Activities

  • We run a number of community services to help people in Reading enjoy later life.
  • These include:
  • Social clubs for those who need support to leave the home.
  • Dementia therapy
  • Homeshare
  • Befriending for those who are chronically lonely.
  • Foot care, basic nail cutting and foot care made affordable for those who cannot do this for themselves.
