Electrical Appliances Project

Reading Matins working with Christian Community Action (CCA) Reading to provide essential small electical equipment such as kettles and two ring counter top hobs to suppport households moving to new accommodation.

The Need

For a long time, the number of households in Reading moving into accommodation where there is no furniture and no electrical applicances has been increasing. CCA supports households with short term emergency provisions, furniture and bedding/kitchen starter packs principally from items donated to the organisation. During the Covid-19 lockdown the demand for our services has increased significantly.

Through partnership with agencies in Reading CCA try to facilitate the provision of white goods and applicances which are not supplied from stock, these can take some days to arrive. Households are often rehoused at very short notice and this delay causes them to be left for several days without the means to cook meals or heat hot water for a hot drink. CCA try to give them donated kettles, toasters and hobs which are checked and PAT tested but supply is limited. 

The Rotary Club of Reading Matins Partnership

With the support of Reading Matins Covd-19 project, CCA will be able to supply kettles, toasters and countertop twin hobs to clients so that they will have them when they move into their accommodation. Not only will they have a home, furniture, bedding and kitchen essentials, but also the means to have hot meals and drinks without delay.

The project is administered thorugh CCA's normal Support Centre assessment procedures via:
