Reading Fairtrade is supported by our key Community Partners. We couldn't do it without you!
Reading has a strong reputation for internationalism and anti-racism, and many groups in the town come together to support Fairtrade activities. In particular, Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC) is one of the UK’s principal Development Education Centres, working with schools and community groups to raise the profile of global issues and promote action for Fairtrade, sustainability, human rights and social justice.
The Fairtrade movement in Reading is also strongly supported by the town’s mayor, council and Councillors. The first Fairtrade resolution was passed by Reading Council in 1996; Reading was officially accredited as a Fairtrade Town in 2004; and the accreditation has since been renewed several times by the Fairtrade Foundation.
The University of Reading is a Fairtrade University, with an active Fairtrade Steering Group and support from the students’ union, the chaplaincy and the university authorities.
