Volunteer Month: Shared Reading North West needs you!

Written by The Reader, 14th November 2017

The Reader is building a volunteer-led movement across the North West. Could you help us make that happen?

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?

Over the next two years, Shared Reading North west want to recruit over 800 volunteers and establish 216 Shared Reading groups in communities across the region.

So far we've recruited over 100 volunteers and set up 70 groups but we've still got a long way to go to make sure that everyone in region, whoever they are, wherever they are, can find a Shared Reading group near them.

If you want to know more about Shared Reading North West or find out how you could get involved, why not come along to a Shared Reading Coffee Morning to meet the team and discover how you could be part of the story. We have dates coming up in Roby, Bootle, Windmill Hill, Calderstones, Huyton and Childwall.
