Listening Books currently have a number of FREE memberships available for people living in Southwark who would like to join, but would find it difficult to cover the usual membership fees (between £20 to £45 per year) for any reason.
The service is not just for people with visual impairments, but many other conditions that can make reading or holding books difficult such as: dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, cerebral palsy, depression, anxiety, problems with manual dexterity, diabetes, fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, cancer, MS, dementia, Parkinson’s Disease and many others.
How to join?
You don’t require any financial proof for these free memberships, just a self-declaration that the annual membership fee would be a barrier to joining the service.
"Please be assured that we are a charity and there are no hidden costs involved in our free memberships and no charges to borrow individual books."
