Welcome Reading is part of a community project funded by the UK Government’s Hong Kong British Nationals (Overseas) Welcome Programme.
Our aim is to help those moving to the UK to discover a welcoming face, be welcomed into the community, and find everything they need in Reading and the local area. Welcome Reading was set up in 2022 by Coffee & Craft, a community group under Wycliffe Baptist Church.
