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 admin@interactstroke.org to arrange extra sessions.

WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU OFFER?

We currently offer sessions in English or Welsh, 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!
