Save Our Service: people who use Reading Your Way take action
Back in January, Reading Council began consultation around the future of our Reading Your Way Service, and there was a real chance our service would have to close at the end of the financial year. This was very unwelcome news to the people who benefit from the service, who joined forces to form the Service User Action Group and petition to save Reading Your Way. Their hard work paid off, as after a mixture of petitioning, protesting and making their voices at heard at public meetings, funding for the service was extended for 12 months.
