Young Readers Programme FAQs
Can I apply to run a Young Readers Programme project?
Due to the targeted way in which we work and the restrictions of funding, participation in our projects is by invitation only.
We cannot guarantee funding for prospective projects, but are happy to hear from anyone working with children or young people who might benefit from taking part in one of our programmes. Please contact us to register your interest.
If you have your own funding, our Young Readers Programme resource makes the programme available to anyone wishing to run it.
Can I volunteer to help with the Young Readers Programme?
The nature of our projects means that opportunities for regular local volunteering are extremely limited. Information about volunteering with the National Literacy Trust can be found here. For reading volunteering opportunities, contact Volunteer Reading Help. For more general volunteering opportunities, visit Do It or Timebank.
Can I fundraise for the Young Readers Programme?
The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity and relies on voluntary contributions. We are always grateful to hear from groups or individuals interested in either fundraising for us or making a donation. Please visit our 'Support us' pages to find out more.
Can I access password-protected areas of the website?

Does the Young Readers Programme produce any literacy promotion resources that can be used by everyone?
