Impact Reading was simply a working title for the Network of Christian Charities in the Greater Reading area, from Foodbank to Counselling,; subsidised Furniture to Debt Advice; Homeless Drop-in to fighting Exploitation.
Some of the Charities are already working more closely together in South Reading through “Whitley SALT“. This is a somewhat stronger coming together of Charities under one umbrella name, using a Common Assessment Form to enable each organisation to signpost anyone they come into contact with around a range of possible needs.
SALT – Social Action Linked Together is a prototype to see whether greater co-operation has benefits for all concerned. Some organisations have a more frontline contact with the public and are better placed to signpost. A fine example would be a debt counsellor placing an order for a series of food parcels.
