Braw Blether

Braw Blether is a reading group with a difference. This service encourages individuals to come together to share thoughts, ideas, emotions and feelings using books, stories, poems as the inspiration.

“There is a direct link between what you feel about stories and what you feel about everything else, especially about yourself.”

At any one time up to one in five adults in the UK can feel alone, stressed or struggle to cope with life but using the ideas from stories, books and poems in this way can improve confidence, self-esteem and interpersonal skills.

Why not join in and see how much better you feel with a cup of tea and a Braw Blether?
