Hi Maria here,
I’m the Programme Manager for the Touch to See Book Club project. Every day I see what a difference this project makes to adults of all ages. I am based at the Living Paintings office in Kingsclere but travel the country to meet Club Leaders, members, partner organisations and identify opportunities to set up new Touch to See Book Clubs in local communities.
My role is to support people to engage with new interests, helping them to learn new skills, increase their self-esteem and develop new friendships. It is an incredibly rewarding job.
I am always looking to register new Clubs and seeking to create collaborations/partnerships with local voluntary and community bodies and individuals across the country.
If you are an individual looking to volunteer for a fabulous project such as this or you are already part of a group that is making a difference to people who are visually impaired then please contact me to find out more about what we can do for you and your members.
Also if you have any questions about developing a Club in your area or know of someone who would be interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 01635 299771. We also have an up-to-date audio catalogue now available and it includes all the information you need about making an order and details of the contents of all 34 titles.
You can access the catalogue here via SoundCloud:
Look forward to hearing from you!
