Audiobook Service

An audiobook lending charity for those that find their illness, mental health, physical or learning disability affects their ability to read the printed word or hold a book. We have over 10,000 fantastic titles for you to enjoy - from bestselling novels and autobiographies, to groundbreaking non-fiction and books to improve your wellbeing. There's something for everyone in the Listening Books collection! Living with any illness or disability can be tough, but we're here to make sure that you always have the comfort and companionship of a good story at the push of a button. Audiobooks can be listened to online (from an app or our website) or we can send CDs through the post. The service is usually paid, but is free for those who would find the annual fee a barrier to joining.

Service access criteria: People must live in the UK and have an illness, disability, learning difficulty or mental health condition that makes it difficult or impossible to read the printed word.
