Supporting our community with Pre-Loaded tablets

No one should ever feel lonely and isolated 

At Listening Books, we are always looking at ways our audiobook service can support those who may find themselves feeling isolated or disconnected from others and the wider world due to their illness or disability.  We know from experience that audiobooks can alleviate some of these feelings, whether you enjoy great adventures, intriguing mysteries or a good laugh with a comedy. With our Pre-loaded tablet projects, and support from the partners listed below, we are able to provide our service to many more people.
