Reading Force

Reading Force – Book Club Ambassador



Reading Force online Book Clubs were launched in 2021. These have proved to be a popular and effective way to engage small groups of differing ages – children (juniors and seniors), spouses, serving personnel, veterans, and others – in the Forces community wanting to connect through sharing books.

To date we have helped organise clubs across the UK and overseas with over 200 members between them, by supporting volunteer coordinators to set up and run their own book clubs. The RF  Book Club Ambassador will continue to support existing coordinators and manage the set up and expansion of new groups.

The current Book Club Ambassador is moving to a different role within Reading Force and will provide training and support to the new person as they take on this dynamic role.
