How can you help?

We are a very cost-efficient charity and can provide a weekly one-to-one reading support session for a child for a whole academic year for an average of just £15.

What a small amount to transform a child's opportunities in life!


Schoolreaders is the only national charity to offer reading support to schools for free. This means that any child who needs support, regardless of the financial circumstances of their school, can benefit. While our volunteers generously give their time for nothing, we still have to raise funds to administer the scheme. Our small paid team matches volunteers with schools and supports both thereafter, ensuring that the relationship between the two is long-lasting and rewarding for both.
