The Reading Agency is a charity working to inspire more people to read more, encourage them to share their enjoyment of reading and celebrate the difference that reading makes to all our lives.

The Reading Agency supports people at all stages of their reading journey and runs the Reading well books on prescription for dementia scheme. The scheme available in public libraries as part of a national library strategy to support the development of dementia-friendly communities and build understanding and awareness of the condition.

Through the scheme, health professionals can recommend helpful reading to support people with dementia and their carers. People can also self-refer using the booklist to borrow titles for free from their local library.
