Trust House Reading would like to thank all of our supporters and everyone who kindly fundraises on our behalf. In particular, we would like to mention:
Trust House Reading provides the SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) counselling services for the Thames Valley area (funded by the NHS) which provides professional and confidential counselling to women, men and children affected by rape and sexual abuse within Thames Valley. This includes those who have accessed the SARC, Paediatric Sexual Assault Services (SAS) or those who have had contact with Specially Trained Police Officers (or equivalent) or Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs).

The Ashworth Charitable Trust (Registered Charity No. 1045492) who kindly gave us £3,000 in order to fund the costs of childcare, transportation and translation that prevent some people from being able to access our services.
