Abbeyfield set up their first Reading Friends group at Westall House in West Sussex. Following the success of that project they plan to expand to four more care homes.

Activities at Westall House have included family fun days, ‘read all about it’ newspaper sessions and outings to the local libary and pre-school. Abbeyfield is planning new Reading Friends projects in Berkshire, Cambridge, Bingley and New Malden.
