  2. 2. Reading Single Homeless Project is Reading’s only independent supported housing charity. It started as a soup kitchen in the 1970s and now has 58 properties offering 105 bed spaces! However, RSHP does not just offer a bed and a roof, we offer help with managing money and paying bills, with understanding the rights and responsibilities of a tenancy, works with other agencies such as drug & alcohol services, and helps tenants manage their house hold tasks. Through fund raising it offers additional services including an alcohol support worker and support group, employment, training and education, a counselling service, a young persons project, an awarding winning allotment, a volunteers officer and a community psychiatric nurse. This is what RSHP offers, the best opportunity for homeless people to be reintegrated back into the community.
