Get Involved

Be part of The Reader story. . .


If you want to be part of The Reader story there are lots of ways to get involved:

We’re bringing Shared Reading to every corner of the UK – join a group near you and come along! All our sessions are free to attend and most are open to everyone regardless of age, background or reading ability.*

If you can’t find a Shared Reading group near you, perhaps you’d like to become a trained Reader Leader and start one in your local community? If you’d like to get involved there are lots of ways to volunteer with The Reader.

Great literature is at the heart of everything we do and we believe it has a lot to teach us. The Reader have developed a range of courses from our flagship Read to Lead programme to one-day literary workshops. Find out more about our latest courses.

The Reader want to bring people together and we hold regular events throughout the year – Discover our latest events.

If you’d like to join The Reader team, find out more about our current jobs.

If you’d like to know more just get in touch.


*some Shared Reading groups take place is closed settings such as care homes or hospital in-patient wards; or have a specific remit, e.g. for carers, or people recovering from memory loss.
