“Literacy gives a child choices” Carole, Tutor, Children’s Literacy Charity

Without the help of our committed supporters, we couldn’t provide our life-changing literacy tuition for the children who are at the greatest risk of being left behind.

Could you get involved and help us to help more children?

From readathons, to bake sales, or even marathons, we have an idea for everyone’s tastes and interests. We’ll support you every step of the way, and provide the materials you need to make sure your event is a success.
