2020 - Resource Centre Openings collage

West Berkshire Council is to re-open its Resource Centres on Monday 24 August in accordance with government guidelines. 

The Resource Centres at Hungerford, Newbury and Calcot provide a wide range of services to help adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and people with frailty and dementia. They have been closed due to Covid-19. 

Graham Bridgman, West Berkshire's Executive Member for Adult Social Care, said:

"I'm delighted that we're now able to reopen our Resource Centres. They help all kinds of people by keeping them connected, enabling them to make new friends and enjoy being part of community group activities. 

 "Many of our service users have told us how much they've been missing their Resource Centre staff and friends during Covid-19 and can't wait to see them again.  We're really looking forward to welcoming everyone back on the 24."
