Support us Donate Give the Gift of Reading Donate Can you imagine not being able to read? How different do you think your life would be? Over 200,000 children left school unable to read to the expected level last year. These children risk an uncertain future and the damaging long-term effects of poor literacy: 70% of pupils permanently excluded from school have difficulties with basic literacy 25% of young offenders have reading skills below that of the average 7 year old But it doesn't have to be this way. You can rewrite this story and ensure every child has the gift of reading by donating to Beanstalk. Just £7 will provide one week’s worth of literacy support £30 will provide one month’s worth of literacy support £60 will provide an entire term's worth of literacy support £189 will provide a full year’s worth of literacy support For every pound that's donated to us, we spend 88p on our life-changing one-to-one support.
