We rely on a small army of dedicated staff and volunteers to help prevent homelessness in Reading.
From caretakers, fundraisers and counsellors, to support officers, finance administrators and activities coordinators – there are a wide range of disciplines at Launchpad and our team are a talented bunch.

Lizzy works in our supported housing team and carries out all the assessments for potential clients. She has been at Launchpad for almost one year.
Nikki works in our floating support team – which supports individuals, couples and families facing homelessness to try and prevent the situation from getting worse. She specialises in supporting clients with offending backgrounds and those with particularly complex needs.
Rachel joined Launchpad in July 2022 and volunteers once a week at Launchpad 135, our work and life skills centre, using a person-centred approach. She can also integrate CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and art therapy if this is a helpful way for the client to unpack their thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
