Schoolreaders was founded in 2013 with twelve participating schools and a handful of volunteers. The response to the scheme has been fantastic, and we are already well on the way to forming a nationwide network of schools and volunteers.
Who are we?
Schoolreaders come from all sorts
of backgrounds - the thing that unites them is their genuine passion for inspiring children with a love of books and giving them the skills to read confidently. Many of our volunteers have been with the scheme since it started, and say that their school visits are one of the high points of their week.

The day-to-day administration of Schoolreaders is run by a small team of paid staff who are based at our offices in Bedford. These full-time staff are assisted by a management committee of volunteers, and by a nationwide network of county teams, all of whom are also volunteers.
