Change of drop-in day for Alana House West Berkshire

A DROP-IN session for vulnerable women in West Berkshire is changing days.

Alana House which currently operates from Broadway House, The Broadway, Newbury, on a Friday will be changing the day of its drop-in sessions to a Tuesday from 4th November. The session time is 12.30pm-3pm.

Alana House is an award-winning community project that works with vulnerable women in Reading and West Berkshire.

The project supports vulnerable women with complex needs, including those involved in the criminal justice system, and helps them to make positive life changes and develop new skills. Women are offered support, information and advice through drop-in sessions and one-to-one support.

Alana House has a permanent centre in South Street, Reading. Its satellite branch in Newbury has been running since July 2014.

The project, which is run by the charity Parents And Children Together (PACT), recently won The Howard League for Penal Reform Award in the Community Programme for Women category.

Alana House Manager Angeline Cross said: “We hope this will be a more convenient day and time and enable more women to attend and benefit from the wide range of activities and professional advice that we can offer.”
