Reading groups

  • We have two online reading groups you can join,
    • You can join our Share the Joy group on Facebook, just search for the group and ask to join.
  • If you are already a member of a reading group, there are several ways you can take your meeting online. You can be connected in the following ways over Wi-Fi or an internet connection if you have any of the following apps.
    • WhatsApp video and phone call. You need to create a WhatsApp group with at least one other participant but then you can ‘Invite to Group via link’ for people to join which can help if you’re worried about data protection. To start a group call click on the icon.
    • Zoom is an easy and free to use for group meetings lasting under 40 minutes. Just sign up, set up a ‘meeting’ and share the link to the rest of your group to join in. Zoom has also been recommended as a dementia-friendly online video communication. See the Zoomettes Guide to ZOOM and watch the ‘How to use ZOOM’ film here from the Zoomettes courtesy of the Dementia Voices website.
