Story StartersLife is better when everyone can read well and express themselves with confidence. Story Starters is a new programme that gives children aged three to five years old the language and communication skills they need to start school ready to learn and all set to reach for the stars. Story Starters has been made possible by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. We received £1 million from the People’s Postcode Lottery Dream Fund to launch Story Starters in January 2017.

We’re looking forward to discussing with you in more detail the impact you will have on a child’s life. One of our team will shortly be in touch by phone to take you through the next stage and answer any questions you may have. You will be asked to provide two referees. They should not be family members or partners and ideally, but not necessarily, they should be someone who has observed you working with children in a paid or non-paid capacity. Please be ready to give the name, address, phone number and email address of your two referees when we call.
