Can you imagine not being able to read? How different do you think your life would be?

Approximately 1 in 4 primary school children leave school unable to read at the expected level. These children risk an uncertain future and the devastating 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 children like Michael have the gift of reading by donating to Coram Beanstalk. 

  • £22 will provide one term’s reading support to a child
  • £50 buys ten brilliant books that can be used by our volunteers to help children engage with and improve their reading
  • £198 will provide one year’s reading support to three children

For every pound that is donated to Coram Beanstalk, we spend 86p on our life-changing one-to-one support
