Storying Sheffield

SAWN: Words for Wellbeing. 15th July.


The Sheffield Arts and Wellbeing Network will be meeting this Wednesday, 15th July at 6pm. The venue is St Mary’s church and conference centre in Sharrow.

Shaun Lawrence, Reader in Residence at Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, will be speaking about his work. Shaun works for The Reader Organisation, a charitable social enterprise based in Liverpool which aims to connect people with great literature through shared reading groups across a variety of settings.

His role at SHSC builds on the success of weekly volunteer-led groups which have been in place for the last three years. He has been setting up and facilitating six shared reading groups at locations including the older adult and adult wards, a nursing home and the Clover Group GP surgery in Darnall.

Shaun will be demonstrating and sharing his approach, as well as talking about his role and the Reader Organisation.

All welcome – free to attend.
