CiRDiC  

One amazing provision that has existed for years is the drop-in centre on Berkeley Avenue

The Churches in Reading Drop in Centre has been providing food, clothing, hospitality, internet access, friendship, advice, etc. for many many years

Staffed almost entirely by volunteers, CiRDiC does a fantastic job and “Faith” have partnered with them for many years as a complementary service
