Reading Advice Network (RAN) is an umbrella organisation that brings together and supports organisations providing the public with Information and Advice, in Reading (Berkshire, UK) and surrounding area.
They promote excellence through ensuring their Members achieve quality standards and share their good practice. They signpost those who may need information and offer advice to Members.
By working with their Members, as well as other organisations providing information and advice, they ensure that the people of Reading can access a high standard of delivery from a broad range of organisations. They also help to increase contact between voluntary and statutory organisations, and influence policy-making for the people and communities of Reading.
