Human Library Information Session

Human Library Information Session

Human Library Information Session

We’ve partnered with the NHS Equalities and Human Rights Team to take part in the “Human Library” project. This project aims to challenge prejudice and improve NHS services through honest conversation.

Like a traditional library, attendees of the Human Library can select from a diverse array of titles. What sets this experience apart is that the ‘books’ are real people with diverse stories and experiences to share, and the way people ‘read’ is to take part in a conversation.

The NHS Equalities Team will be delivering an exclusive information session tailored for Amma Birth Companions, where they will explain how the Human Library works and ways to get involved.
