Our Alana House work in West Berkshire is changing. From the end of May 2018 we will no longer be delivering our vulnerable women's service funded through Public Health. This service will instead be run by Berkshire Women's Aid (BWA) from Friday 1 June and will continue to be available to any vulnerable women, not just those experiencing domestic abuse. We are working closely with Public Health and BWA to ensure a smooth transition, particularly for those women being supported by this service.
Alana House will continue to work in West Berkshire through its Building Better Opportunities project, which is funded by the Lottery and the European Social Fund. The focus of the Building Family Bridges programme, which we offer throughout the Thames Valley, is to work with women who would like to secure employment or engage in training or education. We will continue to support women with additional needs as we support them into employment, however will no longer be able to work with women in West Berkshire who are currently employed or are ineligible to work, or who are in crisis or who have complex (three or more) needs, as they will need to be referred to BWA.
