Map for Association of Scottish Talking Newspapers (ASTN)

Organisation details

The main objective of the ASTN is to help people who cannot read newspapers and magazines, whether due to visual impairment or some disability, which makes reading a strain. To achieve this aim, we offer help and guidance to the Scottish Talking Newspapers. Where the need is identified, we stimulate development of new Talking Newspapers (TNs), providing training and guidance.

There are around 70 TNs in Scotland, some of them also producing Talking Magazines(TMs). The majority of TNs and TMs are run by volunteers and several of them are Scottish Charities.

Services offered:

  • Business advice
  • Talking newspapers
