Alliance for Cohesion and Racial Equality (ACRE) - Covid 19 response


Covid-19 Support Request Form


The national emergency situation caused by Covid-19 disproportionately affects minority communities and means that many people now require more support than normal. Community support partners Alliance for cohesion and racial equality (ACRE), Utulivu Women’s Group, Women with Vision (Reading), and Reading Community Learning Centre (RCLC) have come together to coordinate support for BAMER, marginalised or minority communities and especially those from the new and emerging groups in Reading, Berkshire. Individuals within these communities may be experiencing difficulties in coping with the current situation and would need assistance. We aim to help them get the support they need.
