Neighbourhood services

The Council's Neighbourhood Services Team works directly with older people in their neighbourhoods to ensure they have opportunities to stay involved in community activities. The team has supported the development of a number of successful social groups which are now run by older people (with help from the team where needed) in Caversham Park Village, Amersham Road, Southcote and Whitley Wood. For more details call Michelle Berry on 0783 433 5103 or Sarah Hunneman on 0758 087 0945.
