Resources & Templates
Please note, as these are external sites involve has no control over the content of these websites and by listing them we are not necessarily endorsing them, merely pointing them out as potentially useful resources. At any point, please contact us for further information and advice regarding your organisation and we will try to assist in any way we can.
Meeting Rooms & Venues for Hire
involve has a few different meeting rooms available for hire. Charities and not-for-profit organisations can rent one of our larger meeting rooms at the Court House for £10 per hour. Two of these can hold 20 – 30 people. We also have a small meeting room for groups of 4 – 6 people and an interview room for 1-on-1 meetings, which cost a bit less. Refreshments are available too (for which we will ask a small donation).
Corporates can rent these spaces too, however the rates are a bit higher. There is no parking available at the site but there are plenty of public car parks available as as well good access to public transport. We have not rented our rooms out for a while due to COVID-19 restrictions, but as we gradually ease back into business as usual, we will also be working out ways we can safely lend the use of our rooms again for the benefit of local charities, ensuring social distancing and other safety procedures can be met.
You can book a room by completing our room booking form, which includes a full list of prices and our cancellation policy too. Please make sure you have read our terms and conditions of room bookings and use before booking or attending. If you may be interested in hiring this space but would like more information beforehand, please contact us on 01344 304404 or email us.
Sources of Support for Carers
There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are supporting a loved one. These carers help to hold families together, enabling older, disabled or seriously ill loved ones to get the most out of life. They make an enormous contribution to society and save the economy billions of pounds every year.
Many of them are stretched to the limit as they juggle care with work and family life, or even struggle with poor health themselves. Many find it difficult to make ends meet if they are unable to work or if they have reduced their working hours to care. Many young carers juggle school and friendships to care.
The wide and varied provision of carers’ services in Bracknell Forest is critical to the provision of carers support. Building strong, effective partnership working between the organisations that provide carer support and those that interface with carer support is essential if we, as a community, are to ensure that the invaluable contribution of our carers is supported, appreciated and sustainable. Below are listed just a few of the organisations that are on hand to offer direct support.
- Age Concern Bracknell
- BADHOGS (Bracknell Area Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing Support Group)
- Autism Berkshire
- TuVida (Previously Berkshire Carers Hub)
- Promise Inclusion (Previosuly Wokingham, Bracknell & District Mencap)
- Kerith Community Clubs & Groups
- Parkinsons Disease Society
- Triple A (Ascot Area Alzheimers)
