Free Membership

Image of man walking and listening to books © Yingchou-Han-241463-unsplashWe don't want anyone to miss out on membership due to financial reasons, and we sometimes are able to offer free memberships to individuals due to the generous support of charitable trusts and companies. These memberships are available for anyone living in the UK who finds that an illness, disability, specific learning difficulty or mental health condition, impacts on their ability to read or a hold book and who would find it difficult to cover our membership fees (usually between £20 and £45 per year).

A free membership covers both our online and postal options, so members can choose what works best for them. Click here to find out more about the different services.

If you would like to find out more about Listening Books' sponsored membership scheme, please contact our Membership Administrator on 0207 407 9417 or email Alternatively, you can apply online.

*If you apply for a free membership, you will have access to our full range of services. Please note, if you do not use the membership within the first 4 weeks after you have been sent your welcome pack, the membership will be cancelled and the free place offered to someone else.
