Did You Know we have a weekly Shared Reading Group? How does it work?
Does your caring role stop you from reading a book or books? When was the last time you had someone read to you?
Our weekly reading group enables carers to sit round a table, have fun with other carers and have a short story read to them by an experienced Reader called Dorothy (she is wonderful by the way). You then get to discuss the story, compare ideas and really delve into the characters, did you like them or dislike them, it is for you to chat and tell your story….
Everyone experiences the text in their own way, but the literature provides a shared language that can help us to understand ourselves – and others – better.
It can even help with your ESOL needs.
Research shows that learning new skills can also improve your mental wellbeing by:
- boosting self-confidence and raising self-esteem
- helping you to build a sense of purpose
- helping you to connect with others
