Reading West MP gives his seal of approval to new Job Club

A CLUB designed to help people get back into work welcomed a special guest last month.

Alok Sharma, MP for Reading West, visited the Reading Job Club run by Reading Family Church on Wednesday, September 25.

The club helps people who have been referred by the Job Centre, local Housing Associations and by the church themselves.

Mr Sharma met with club members and shared some insights into the employment situation based on his experience as an MP. He also answered questions from the delegates and promised to do what he could to help the club.

Andy Dickens, from Reading Family Chrurch and leader of the Job Club, said: “We prepare people to get back into work.”

Alok praised the club. “I think what you’re doing is brilliant,” he said. “Organisations such as this [really] provide.”

The club meets at Reading Family Church’s offices in London Street from noon to 1.30pm on the second and fourth Mondays in the month. Entry is free and new members are welcome.
