Bedrock Books

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

In partnership with wellbeing projects, Bedrock Books gifts books and supports reading groups, providing the opportunity to develop resilience and improve wellbeing and confidence. ​Bedrock Books is a Community Interest Company, established in 2018, by a small team of volunteers. 

The Books

Texts can come from different genres including poetry, fiction, biographies and other non-fiction. We choose books which help trigger reflection and self understanding, and speak to inspirational and life-affirming values


Beneficiaries include inmates,homeless people, nurses who have been supporting COVID patients, families at risk of domestic violence, and veterans.


Bedrock Books is a CIC completely run by volunteers and we are continually seeking skilled and enthusiastic volunteers to help us to move forward with our projects and reach our goals.​

What do we do?

  • We gift books to wellbeing projects. We encourage projects to use the books in ways which support sustainable engagement – reading groups are a good example.
  • We support unique ‘read aloud’ reading groups where reading, reflection and sharing enable participants to discover their innate potential.

‘I am taking away that I have the power within myself to deal with any situation.’
