Reading Well

Aggregated Reading Well scheme (social prescribing) data from 2013/14. Reading Well helps you to understand and manage your health and wellbeing using helpful reading.

The books are all endorsed by health experts, as well as people with living with the conditions covered and their relatives and carers. You can be recommended a title by a health professional, or you can visit your local library and take a book out yourself.

There are currently four book lists available: Reading Well for mental health, dementia, young people, and long-term conditions.

Reading Well is delivered by The Reading Agency in partnership with the Society of Chief Librarians as part of the Society of Chief Librarians' Universal Health Offer. It is funded by Arts Council England and Wellcome.

The programme is supported by a wide range of professional health bodies including Public Health England, NHS England and The Royal College of GPs. Visit the Reading Well website to see all of our supporting health partners.
