Last updated: 15/12/2023

Are you, or is someone you know, providing much-needed unpaid care for a loved one?

We are a partnership of four commissioned local charities: Reading Mencap, Age UK Reading, Age UK Berkshire and CommuniCare. Between us we offer information, advice, and support to people throughout Reading and West Berkshire who are caring for a child or adult family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health condition or an addiction and who cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.

The Reading and West Berkshire Carers Partnership can offer:

Information, advice and support – available for carers when it's needed most.

and much more.
