What we do Communities Book Buddies Antrim Our Book Buddies project is supported by Barnardo's Collective Impact Project. Book Buddies Antrim works with Rathenraw Youth Club, Parkhall Youth Club, and Oasis to deliver a shared reading programme. Who we work with We work with children aged 10-14 years. We encourage them to share their experiences through stories and poetry in a safe environment. We also work with parents at Oasis to share and nurture the joy of reading with their children. Community Through the Book Buddies shared reading programme, we have built strong links between families and their communities.
