We first launched in 2015 as the Spread The Word Campaign. This summer, we have relaunched with a fresh look, feel, projects - and name!
Introducing Book Refuge
Book Refuge aims to make literature more accessible for those who have been made homeless.
We have the same overall mission as before, but have rebranded and changed our name to better reflect our values - and to avoid any confusion with the existing charity Spread The Word.
Book Refuge works with homeless services to start mini-libraries for their clients, as well as provides resources on how to engage clients with literature. We believe that books can act as a great "refuge" from daily struggles, no matter who you are or what you are going through.
There are a number of ways you can get involved with Book Refuge.
We are always looking to work with people who share our values. Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts and suggestions.
What we are looking for:
Homeless services in London who would like to receive book donations for a mini-library
People and organisations who can donate books in bulk
People and organisations who can help with book donation deliveries
Authors, writers and creative writing experts to consult on workshops
Businesses that can open a public book donation point on their premises
