Reading Group

The reading group helps people to develop their confidence and social skills through shared reading.

It offers Thames Reach service users and local residents the chance to come along and listen to readings of stories and poetry in a relaxed, informal setting.

People are encouraged to attend and get involved, whatever their reading ability. Anyone can participate, even if they are not a strong reader and there’s no pressure to talk or to read as everything is read aloud.

The service is run by Thames Reach in partnership with The Reader, a social enterprise that aims to connect people through shared reading.

The weekly sessions take place every Friday, 10.30am – 12pm at the Employment Academy, 29 Peckham Road, London SE5 8UA.

For more information please call Thames Reach’s employment and resettlement team on 0203 691 5111 or email
