"We're delighted to be working in partnership with Camden Council to deliver the Reading Agency's 'Read, Talk, Share' initiative. The benefits of reading as well as contact with others is well known to support people’s health and wellbeing. This project will provide opportunities for individuals to be introduced to a diverse range of reading material and to link with others to share their thoughts on it.  The project also recognises the value that public libraries bring being safe spaces for people across Camden to access support and advice. So there will be time for people to share their concerns and be provided with the information they need to reassure them. With more older people in Camden finding themselves alone, and for a longer period these 'Read, Talk, Share' groups and services will provide vital support and engagement at a time when people need it most." - Nikki Morris, Age UK Camden CEO
