Christian Community Action (CCA) provides;

  • a listening ear at our support centres;
  • essential furniture from our warehouse;
  • affordable goods through our charity shops;
  • volunteer opportunities for those finding their way back into the workplace.

The core purpose of CCA, a local Reading charity, is to demonstrate God’s love by meeting people’s practical needs and restoring self-worth.
We do this by collecting good quality second hand furniture that is no longer required, providing a valuable recycling service.  Donors also give us clothing and household goods.  We then redistribute these to those in need via our Support Centres.  We can also supply bedding, kitchen utensils and baby equipment.  We sell surplus items through our furniture outlet and charity shops.
CCA relies on a team of 25 paid staff and over 150 volunteers to operate. We also provide volunteer placements for those looking to return to work.  We do this in partnership with other local agencies, such as a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre and the local prison.
