What we do

Alana House is a non-judgemental and inclusive space where the team work in partnership with women in one-to-one and group support, outreach and partnering with external agencies for specific intervention. Alana House in Reading also provides crèche services.

At Alana House, vulnerable and distressed women with complex needs are supported to address particular behaviours and assess life circumstances that may put them in a vulnerable position or at risk of offending.

We support the women with 1:1 keywork, group work, community outreach, drop-in sessions and partner agency co-delivered courses and information sessions.

Women are offered information and support in line with the nine pathways to reducing re-offending to help them to become empowered to make positive life changes, develop new skills and create new opportunities.

The nine pathways are:

  • Accommodation
  • Attitudes, thinking and behaviour
  • Children, families and relationships
  • Domestic abuse, violence and rape
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Education, training and employment
  • Finance benefit and debt
  • Health and well-being
  • Sex Working/prostitution

We work in partnership with many agencies.  Find out more.
