Enjoy being read to!
Get Into Reading groups are a new type of reading group that help you to relax, concentrate and think things through. The people who join such groups include people who read and people who don’t! The overall aim to increase feelings of well-being through the shared reading of good books and poems, but quite often we just enjoy the chance to be able to explore some of the big questions of life with others. The groups are all free, with each group led by someone who will read aloud so you don’t have to. All reading takes place within the session (so you don’t have to worry about reading anything before the session). The group often stops to discuss people’s immediate thoughts and memories about what has just been read, but you can sit back and just listen if you want to.

Other groups run in care homes, day therapy centres and community centres.
