The Support Centre - Oxford Road
What we do?
Where are we?
The Support Centre operates to fulfil Christian Community Action’s mission to show God’s love by meeting people’s practical needs and to increase their self-worth. Everyone who is on income-based benefits is entitled to register as a Support Centre client, and to obtain furniture and other household necessities (eg. bedding and kitchen packs) at Support Centre prices.
To do this they need to show proof of the benefit they are receiving and they can then be registered for a period of 2 years. After this they would need to re-register.
Support Centre staff can also provide information on other support services within the Reading area.
Each of CCA's five charity shops offer support centre services. To find your nearest site visit our Charity Shops page.
Furniture supplied through the Support Centre is purchased under a "blind buying" system. Clients are not able to choose their furniture. The warehouse team does their very best to ensure that all items supplied meet the needs identified by the staff at the Support Centre.
