What do we do?
Our aim is to demonstrate God's love by meeting people's practical needs and restoring their self worth. In addition we try to support our volunteers; helping them to learn new skills, rebuild their confidence and get into paid employment.
CCA provides support for individuals and households in Reading who are in need of emergency furniture, bedding and kitchen items. We do this through recycling donations of furniture, clothing, bric-a-brac and household goods.
We provide furniture and bedding and kitchen starter packs to our clients at greatly discounted prices. Our work is supported by our 4 Charity Shops in Oxford Road, Southcote, Sonning Common and Whitley. In addition we sell furniture to the public at our Furniture Shop in Northumberland Avenue.
In doing so we are also helping to protect the environment and reduce the needless dumping of good quality furniture.
In addition we support those with social, mental health, addiction or other issues who are looking to get back into paid employment. This is done through work placements at our Charity Shops and Furniture Shop. We take referrals from Yeldall Manor, Launchpad, Learndirect, Pinnacle and JobCentrePlus.
All our shops have now reopened!
We are delighted to be back and look forward to welcoming you into our shops which are following Covid guidelines for the safety of you and our personnel.
Announcing the launch
Rotary Electrical Appliances
CCA is delighted to be working with the Reading Rotary Club to administer this project which will supply small electrical appliances to our clients when they are moved into emergency accommodation. This will directly improve the lives of many households in Reading over the next 12 months.
