Reading Council Asks for Views on Services for Older People


Reading resident’s who are interested in support and services for older people both now and in the future are being encouraged to attend a public meeting next week as part of the Let’s Talk Care consultation.

The meeting takes place on Friday May 31st at the Civic Centre towards the end of a detailed three month public consultation. Service users, families and those who may use services in future have been asked how they believe the Council should meet its commitment to ensuring its day care services support existing users while meet the changing needs and expectations of people in the borough. This includes looking at how best to make a range of services available to older people – from exercise classes through to craft and hobby activities and advice about equipment to support independent living.

The event runs from 10am to 12.30pm and is the final public meeting taking place as part of the Let’s Talk Care consultation. The Council will share themes from the feedback received so far and talk to people about how these themes can be reflected in service development.

Residents who are interested in attending can call 0118 937 2969 to book their place. They should also let the Council know if they have any special requirements on the day.

For those who can’t make it there is still time to take part in the consultation. Questionnaires are available online at Paper copies are available from the Civic Centre reception and other public buildings across Reading. They should be returned by post to: Modernising Day Care Services Consultation, Reading Borough Council, Level 11, Civic Centre, Reading RG1 7AE.
