We’re looking for people to help us.take the library out to care homes across the city.
‘Read Aloud’ brings poetry alive, with song and conversation for elderly residents in 16 care homes. A small staff team and more than 30 fantastic volunteers spend up to an hour reading and chatting with groups once a month.
We bring poetry and short stories along with a few familiar songs, photographs and objects to stimulate reminiscence and discussion.
This fantastic work has been recognized at the recent Inspiring Volunteering Achievement Awards.
