We are a UK charity providing a fantastic selection of high-quality audiobooks to some 29,000 people across the UK who find it difficult or impossible to read due to illness or disability. We help a wide range of organisations and individuals and provide our audiobooks on 3 easily accessible formats: through the post on CD, downloaded online and streamed from this website. Members can choose from a range of options to find the service that best suits their needs.
Our service is quick and easy to use and it will open up the wonderful world of books to anyone who finds it difficult to read in the usual way. We support the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 to A-Level and have a huge range of fiction and non-fiction titles for both adults and children. Listening to audiobooks allows children and young people to listen to the same books their friends and peers are reading, helping to instil a greater understanding and enjoyment of literature. For older members, audiobooks can provide welcome relief from pain, boredom and loneliness, lifting them out of what are often challenging circumstances.
The charity charges a membership fee but this is heavily subsidised.
