Our exciting new UK-wide project will use reading to empower, engage and connect isolated older people, including people with dementia and their carers thanks to a £2.1 million grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
We are delighted that Arts Council England has invested in these shared offers with the Society of Chief Librarians and will continue to work with library staff to ensure they are making a positive impact in libraries.
We welcome contact from media professionals. We can provide expert comment and interviewees on the importance of reading and libraries. For all media enquiries please contact our communications agency, Stand or call 0203 6965800.
Out of hours, contact Sue Wilkinson or call 07789 380224
