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.

We are receiving amazingly generous levels of donations at this time for which we are extremely grateful.

However, we have been overwhelmed this week and are not able to accept any donations at Oxford Road for the next few days.

We are very sorry to have to take this step but if you can just be patient and bear with us, we will be back soon accepting donations
