Talking Books

Jewish Care's KC Shasha Centre for Talking News and Books provides talking news, books and magazines for anyone who is 'print impaired'.

That is, anyone who is unable to read or hold a book, whether due to a visual impairment or other health condition, such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson's Disease.

KC Shasha Talking News and Books is a membership service provided via post on USB memory stick. It is available to adults living in the UK. 

Talking Books

Our audio library contains over 1600 books with a Jewish theme or Jewish author. From lighthearted fiction to historical non-fiction and autobiographies, there is something for readers of all tastes.

We produce a weekly abridged audio version of the Jewish Chronicle, for listeners to keep up to date with what's going on in the Jewish world.
