shelf help.


Fusing the best elements of book clubs (sociability, accountability opportunities to learn) and support groups (connection, confidentiality, kindness) Shelf Help meetings are safe spaces for members to meet new people and to discuss the books and how the topics may affect their own lives. They are a chance to be heard, to heal, grow, relate and learn. Or even just listen (often the most enlightening act of all).

Our real-life meetups usually happen on the last Monday of the month, and we currently have meetups in:


Bournemouth / Bristol

Central London / Loughton (Essex) / MANCHESTER

Pembrokeshire / SOUTHAMPTON

West London (Hammersmith) / West Yorkshire



Keswick (Ontario), Canada

Sydney, Australia



Newcastle-Upon-Tyne / Newton Abbot (Devon)

Vancouver (Canada) / Los angeles (USA)

Canberra and Melbourne (Australia)

And there are LOTS more planned. (If there isn’t a meetup where you live/work yet, please use the form below to let us know where you live so that we can add your area to our rollout plans).
