With your support and generosity, we helped over 1,000 people in Reading to get back on their feet last year, a figure which more than tripled in just five years. 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
