About organisation

At Bibliotherapy Hub Leeds, we run four reading groups for refugees and asylum seekers across the city — groups which meet for shared reading and discussion as ‘an active way to improve wellbeing, build stronger communities and extend reading pleasure.’ We read stories and poems out loud together and then discuss them. The groups are completely FREE and run by volunteers from Leeds University. Basic English required but further help will be given during meetings. New members always welcome!
