Shared Reading UK

Our Shared Reading groups bring people together in prisons, hospitals, care homes, libraries and other community spaces across the UK, thanks to the commitment of volunteers, partners and funders. 

We have large Shared Reading communities in the North West, South East and South West, and are supporting emerging movements in North Wales, South Yorkshire and Northern Ireland – but we can bring Shared Reading wherever it’s needed. Are we in your local area yet?

As well as training hundreds of individuals, we have also developed strong relationships with networks of organisations that share our values, in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden.
