Registered Charity No: 264221 (England & Wales).
Patron: Stephen Fry.

Listening Books is a UK charity providing nearly 8,000 fantastic audiobooks on three easily accessible formats: downloads, internet streaming and MP3 CDs.

Our service is available to anyone who has a disability or illness which makes it difficult to hold a book, turn its pages, or read in the usual way. We cater for both adults and children. We provide audiobooks for leisure to all age groups as well as supporting the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 to A-Level. We have over 100,000 members across the UK and all of our titles are either commercially sourced or recorded in our own digital studios.

We provide access to the wonderful world of books for thousands of people in hospices, hospitals, nursing homes and schools as well as in their own homes. We also participate in several schemes to support children in care

We receive no government support, so leaving a gift to Listening Books in your Will could make an incredible difference in breaking down the barriers to the written word for people with print impairments.
