50 Reading Road Team
One of our local community engagements is with 50 Reading Road - a young person’s supported accommodation in Wokingham. The team go in on Tuesday evenings, and our aim is to build the self-esteem, vision and aspirations of the young people so they can make positive choices for their future. We do this by building community through listening, friendship and activities. Our intention is to engage the young people through a variety of creative activities; art, games, canoeing, rock climbing, firepit gatherings, barbecues.
Coronavirus restrictions currently limit what we can do, but we continue to meet with the young people as much as we can in a socially distanced way. We’ve enjoyed our monthly canoe outings over the summer! We're now thinking about the best ways of connecting over the winter, such as one to one mentoring and a few of us gathering around a firepit.
