We help children become readers. Readers achieve their potential: everyone deserves this.

We equip people to help children switch onto reading, learn to read and become confident independent readers. We have applied our proven, evidence-based reading for pleasure approach for 50 years, providing volunteers for early years, primary and secondary school programmes and passing on our expertise through training and support to parents and communities.
