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. There’s a space for you to tell us about any special interests or preferences: you’ll find us very flexible!
If you’re a regular user of our service, we highly recommend that you choose different actors now and again – most users appreciate the variety on offer.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Your chosen actor will call at the agreed time by phone or video-call (as you select) and will spend up to 30 minutes with you (or up to 60 minutes if you are part of a group booking). He or she will read a variety of material to you - both short stories and poems - and engage with you throughout the session.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The service is free of charge to you. *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 email@example.com to arrange extra sessions.
WHAT LANGUAGES DO YOU OFFER?
We currently offer sessions in English (book online – see below) or Welsh, with a Welsh actor
(email firstname.lastname@example.org to make your booking)
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!
