New Radicals Award
“It’s great to be seen as a radical; it’s so easy to take books and reading for granted.”
In December 2011, NESTA and The Observer, launched an open call to find Britain’s New Radicals: people creating radical new solutions to the challenges our society faces, whose vision is improving the lives of people and communities across the country.
Jane’s vision, to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to develop a love of reading and to share their experiences, has seen her build up this charity and social enterprise, which now employs 60 staff members across the UK and offers a lifeline for hundreds of people, simply by reading aloud together.
Our team of interns made a short film to support the entry for the award, which you can see over on our blog by clicking here.
