The Reader Organisation's Get into Reading programme is all about getting people together in groups to engage with serious books. The groups are mixed and the participants sometimes challenging, but the outcomes are often remarkable. Jane Davis, who founded the Reader Organisation and continues to oversee Get into Reading, has witnessed a massive growth in interest in the groups and what they can achieve, from a wide array of individuals and organisations, including mental health trusts such as Mersey Care. The Reader Organisation has now trained more than 500 people to run reading groups, many of them working or volunteering in mental health or care settings.
