Coram Beanstalk is the leading charity provider of one-to-one, in-person, reading support in primary schools. We have worked with thousands of schools across the country since 1973, using our evidence-based reading for pleasure approach to help children switch onto reading, learn to read and become confident independent readers.

Coram Beanstalk diligently vets, trains and supports a large network of high quality reading helpers. They provide regular, outside the classroom, effective and safe support to children identified as needing the extra one-to-one time we know schools want to provide.

"I have been a volunteer reading helper in East London and at my children's school in Cheshire but never had any training to this standard before - it was really excellent."
