Official launch for Alana House West Berkshire

The ALANA House community project which helps vulnerable women is holding an official launch of its expansion into West Berkshire.

Alana House, which is run by the charity Parents And Children Together (PACT), opened a new satellite branch in Newbury in July. An official launch event will be held at Broadway House, Newbury, on Tuesday 18th November at 10.30am.

Alana House supports women with complex needs, including those involved in the criminal justice system, and helps them to make positive life changes and develop new skills.

Alana House West Berkshire is reaching out to support women in the area in addition to those it already works with in Reading. Weekly drop-in sessions are held at Broadway House on Tuesdays from 12.30pm-3.00pm. One-to-one support appointments can be made at other times.

In July of this year Alana House won The Howard League for Penal Reform award in the Community Project for Women category.

Head of Communities Development Natausha van Vliet said: “We are very pleased to be able to extend our work with vulnerable women into West Berkshire.

“We want to reach out to women in West Berkshire who need our support to help them make positive changes in their lives.”

PACT supports vulnerable families through outstanding adoption services, permanent fostering, award-winning therapeutic support and community projects in London and the south.
