Shared Reading Group
Weekly Shared Reading groups for people who are looking for a place to make meaningful connections within themselves and with other people in their community. We read great stories and poems aloud in the groups each week, using the literature as a starting point to help us discover what is common and unique about our thoughts and feelings. Group members are invited to read aloud, join in the conversation or sit back and relax while listening to the story—this is a non-pressure environment where everyone is welcome.
These groups run in partnership with libraries, community centres, hospitals, and day centres across Kensington and Chelsea. Please contact us to find a group near you.
