Bedrock Books supports wellbeing, through reading and sharing, using texts from different genres as a springboard for personal exploration.

Books  supports social and humanitarian projects where certain types of books can benefit young people and adults in need of emotional support, inspiration and encouragement.

'That reflection is positive, sometimes humbling and always stimulating'


WHAT YOUR DONATIONS WILL COVER

HOW DOES THE PROJECT WORK?
The idea is very simple, we invite people who empathise with the purpose and values of Bedrock, to donate books for worthy causes. We then give those books to different projects, whose recipients can benefit from reading and reflecting on the messages in the books. We encourage organisations to use the books in active and creative ways (such as in reading groups, where reflection and interaction on positive values and identities is encouraged) and to feedback to us any responses to the books.
