Find your nearest group

All affiliated Read Easy groups and ‘Pioneers’ are shown on the map below and the list beneath it. To find out more about a particular affiliated group, their current events and the volunteers there, click on ‘Local group details’. If you are interested in offering support to a Pioneer, then contact details are provided so you can get in touch.

Your nearest group will be displayed on the map, although locations are approximate. It is always worth a phone call to see exactly which areas are covered.

We are working hard to extend Read Easy to as many areas of the country as possible. If there is not a group near you yet, please do keep an eye on our website from time to time to watch out for developments.
