Who we help
Our inspirational reading events tap into popular culture to engage disadvantaged children in reading, writing and communication activities. Young Readers Programme and Premier League Reading Stars are two of our programmes that work in this way to support classroom teaching and strengthen the link between the school and the home.
Our work with disengaged young people develops communication skills and confidence. Words for Work brings businesses and schools together to support secondary students and prepare them for both the workplace and adult life.
Our Words for Life campaign encourages parents and carers to talk more and enjoy stories and rhymes with both babies and older children. We also work directly with families, providing peer support through Literacy Champions and working with children's centres through Early Words Together.
Our Books Unlocked programme supports prisoners and young offenders throughout the country to become avid readers.
