Reading Friends is an innovative reading befriending programme delivered by The Reading Agency with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. The programme is about to start the final year of a four-year funded development and roll out phase.
Reading Friends builds social connections using reading to start conversations that combat loneliness and isolation for some of the most vulnerable members of our society; older people, people with dementia and carers. It is powered by volunteers of all ages and delivered by public libraries, community and voluntary organisations.
Reading Friends is entering an exciting new phase, which includes rolling out the programme across the UK and introducing new settings and communities, including work to build intergenerational relationships.
We are looking to recruit a versatile coordinator to support this flagship programme through its roll out phase and work with colleagues to ensure it is sustainable beyond 2020.
