Shared Reading North West

Shared Reading North West

The Reader is building a volunteer-led movement across the North West.

Shared Reading has been proven to promote better health and well-being, to increase social inclusion and we want to make it part of every community across the North West. We’re bringing people together to build a region-wide, volunteer-led movement and we want to hear from you!

Could you run a Shared Reading group in your workplace or local library? Could you help to spread the word of new Shared Reading groups in your area? Do you have the experience or skills to support other volunteers?

Volunteers will become part of region-wide network and will receive full training and ongoing support.

Get in touch and be part of the story…
