Demos, November 2018
Demos carried out research over the summer of 2018 to assess the potential impact of reading on several great challenges of our time: loneliness, mental health problems, dementia and social (im)mobility. If left unchecked, this research shows, these challenges will grow into insurmountable problems. Could something as simple as reading truly make a difference when the scale of the issue is quite so momentous? The short answer is yes.
