Meet some of the staff at Calibre Audio and find out what they get up to with these interviews.

Everyone has the legal right to equal access to information, yet only 7% of print books are converted to audio, the format needed for many disabled people. For young people, this has serious implications for their ability to learn and develop, and for the elderly, socially isolated, or disadvantaged, coming to terms with the loss of their sight, health and mobility, losing a lifelong love of the written word can be a real blow.

At Calibre, they believe in social inclusion and the wider benefits that reading brings, combating social isolation, increasing confidence and independence.

  • Unlimited borrowing of over 13,000 unabridged audiobooks
