Reading Friends is a UK-wide programme with projects across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Our projects are run in partnership with local organisations, including public libraries, community groups and other charities. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer or participate in Reading Friends sessions. Click on the map to find a project near you or register your interest using the form below.
COVID-19 update: Please note that during these difficult times, some Reading Friends projects have been temporarily suspended or will be running differently. You can contact your local coordinator to see what opportunities are available, however please be aware that responses may be delayed due to organisations being closed or individuals self-isolating. In the meantime, take a look at our Stay Connected! resources which give plenty of tips, activities, ideas, links and resources to support you during this time.
