Reading Community Learning Centre (RCLC)

Reading Community Learning Centre (RCLC) provides education and support for the most disadvantaged and socially isolated women in Reading from black and minority ethnic communities.

Many of the women have had little or no previous educational experience and feel unable to attend mainstream establishments because of the cultural, economic and personal barriers they face. Most do not speak English and often they are not literate in their own language. For some, the Centre offers their only contact outside their immediate family.

There is a creche available for women attending the centre.
