Reading Friends

Do you know someone who would benefit from having a Reading Friend to connect with over the phone or as part of an online group?

The Reading Friends scheme brings people together with trained volunteers to read, share stories, meet new friends and have fun.

The library are setting up one-to-one phone calls as well as virtual groups, which will use video call technology. Eventually, in-person groups in libraries are planned when restrictions lift.

Interested in taking part? Please email information.enquiry@essex.gov.uk or phone 0345 603 7628

The Reading Friends scheme has started running – a group has begun meeting, and people are being paired with volunteer ‘friends’: http://ow.ly/pAzZ50EBtam.
