Last year, we helped over 1,400 people who were homeless or at risk of losing their home in Reading. Your very kind donations ensure we can continue to run our vital services.

Would you like to make a donation?


Every donation we receive – no matter how big or small - brings us one step closer to preventing homelessness in Reading.


Regular donations are precious to Launchpad – they allow us to anticipate our income, plan ahead and use our funds most effectively to support people in need.

How can your donation help?

£10 can fund a single bedding and a towel for a homeless adult moving into our supported housing


£35 can fund an online food hygiene course for a client who wants to break the cycle of homelessness and enter employment in a professional kitchen


£50 can help buy clothes and underwear for a client who only has one outfit because they’ve been rough sleeping


Art Supplies

£100 can help buy two months’ worth of materials for art therapy so clients who struggle to communicate can express themselves



£220 can fund a cooker and it’s installation for a family supported by Launchpad who have no way to make a hot meal
