Covid-19 Support Request Form #StayHomeSaveLives
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.

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.
