All you need to know
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We have a pool of fantastic professionally trained actors ready to offer reading sessions to you or your group. When you make an online booking, simply pick a time, date and actor. You can tell us about any special interests or preferences: and you’ll find us very flexible!
If you’re a regular user of our service, we highly recommend that you choose different actors for your sessions – most users appreciate the variety our actors offer!
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Your chosen actor will call at your agreed time by your preferred choice of either phone or video-call. The actor will spend up to 30 minutes with you (or up to 60 minutes if you are part of a group booking). They will read a variety of material to you, a mix of short stories and poems, and engage with you throughout the session
WHAT IS THE COST?
The service is free of charge.
*If you would like more than 2 sessions a week we can arrange this for a modest charge (just the out-of-pocket costs incurred by the charity for each session).
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange extra sessions.
WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU OFFER?
We currently offer sessions in English or Welsh, with a Welsh actor
(email email@example.com to make a booking with a Welsh actor)
WILL I ENJOY IT?
Interactive readings are proven to aid stroke recovery, by stimulating language and memory.
They're also loads of fun and definitely worth a try!
