Volunteer Coordinator – closing 24 July


Listen Share Change is being delivered in partnership with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. It is a volunteer-led, innovative, shared reading programme based in the community that uses poetry and prose to engage with a range of constituent groups from young people who are hard to reach and at risk to older people.

Listen Share Change utilises the existing infrastructure within the Northern Ireland Housing Executive as well as Community and Youth centres, healthcare settings and other local venues to deliver a fully accessible, customised programme of reading activities tailored to meet the needs of all participants.

The purpose of Listen Share Change is to create an inclusive, safe and nurturing environment for participants to engage, flourish and develop by listening to stories and to poems read aloud specifically selected to address diversity, cultural identity and build community cohesion.
