We have a solid track record of running creative projects with libraries and other organisations like schools, colleges and workplaces, to open up reading groups to more people. We have also carried out in-depth research with reading groups and academic partners into the positive benefits reading groups can bring. From both our practical experience and research, we know that reading groups are good for people and good for society - they are social, enjoyable, promote well-being, raise educational achievement and build skills.
Reading Groups for Everyone is spreading the word and celebrating all the great things that reading groups, writing groups and book clubs offer.
Our ambition is that Reading Groups for Everyone becomes the place where anyone can come to find information about reading groups in their area. Where people who are running reading groups can find support, resources and evidence, plus offers and events their group can benefit from. And where everyone can learn more about the many ways reading groups can make a difference to people and their communities.
But we need your help. Please take a few minutes to add any reading groups you run. And if you know of a reading group please get in touch with the organiser and ask them to add their group to this website.
