1 Thorpe Close, Ladbroke Grove
We are currently looking for Reader Leader Volunteers for our West London Project. All Reader Leaders attend our Read-to-Lead training, an in-depth training program in shared reading, as well as receive ongoing support to develop skills towards facilitating a long-term weekly reading group. “The most positive thing about volunteering with Book Break was that I was able to affect people in such a deep profound way and they were able to do the same for me. I’ll probably never be the same again.” ~Reader Leader Volunteer
About The Reader - Kensington & Chelsea
Since 2008, The Reader has pioneered the use of Shared Reading to improve well-being, reduce social isolation and build resilience in diverse communities across the UK and beyond.
We inspire and support people to read great literature aloud together. This simple idea changes lives and builds communities.
Groups we work with include looked after children, people in recovery from substance mis-use, prisoners, individuals living with dementia, parents, teachers, people with mental and physical health conditions and many more.
Our ambition is that Shared Reading will become so widespread that everyone, whoever they are, wherever they are, can access one of our groups.
