    Our quarterly Ready Friends Befriending Forums are for anyone in Reading taking action on loneliness and social isolation.

    Even during lockdown and this shaky period of ‘lockdown-easing’, hundreds of Reading’s voluntary and community groups have shone brightly, quickly moving their activities and support online and over the telephone to help the most vulnerable, who have been isolated and often lonely. But, what if you don’t speak English, or read in your own language – or you can’t use the internet?

    At this Befriending Forum, we will hear from Reading Community Learning Centre and other local groups supporting people who speak other languages and we’ll identify the challenges and opportunities for improving access for everyone in Reading to the amazing variety of community support and activity.

    Please join us on Zoom at 13:00 on Thursday September 24.
