The Rainbow Community and Children's Centre aims to serve the Winnersh community.

The community building is maintained by Wokingham Borough Council. Events and activities are arranged by Wokingham Borough Council, Winnersh Children's Centre and the Centre Forward Community Group, a voluntary organisation run by local residents.  

The Rainbow Community Centre is also the venue of the Winnersh Children's Centre.

Share is a charity who aim to support the community with fresh food including bread and other items which would ordinarily be wasted and are either surplus stock or end of day items from supermarkets.
