For most people, reading a book is a delightful, everyday pastime. Through Streetreads, this ordinary activity is more easily available to people facing and recovering from homelessness in Edinburgh.
The impact a book can have on a homeless reader is huge. Our books are given as a gift and are in excellent or even new condition so our readers know they are getting a present which is given with respect and love. We also host storytelling events, provide literacy support and reading glasses.
At Streetwork, we create connections with people from every background, circumstance and organisation supporting people into recovery and off the street.
Stories of our own and those of others are a great way of connecting with each other and Streetreads is a beautifully-engaging way to do this.
Please give so that we can reach further and build new exciting connections and opportunities for those we support.
