Why work with Schoolreaders?
As many as a quarter of the children in a typical class will leave their primary schools unable to read to the required standard. By supporting Schoolreaders your company can be part of the answer to this national problem.
A NATIONWIDE CHARITY WITH STRONG LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS
Schoolreaders volunteers are working in schools the length and breadth of the country and gave more than a quarter of a million reading support sessions in the 2018/2019 academic year alone. So whether your business has a national profile, or wants to make life better for children in your particular part of the country, we're the perfect partner for you.
SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN MOST IN NEED OF HELP
The Schoolreaders network is growing all the time, and whenever possible we direct expansion into areas where we know there is the greatest need. With your support, we can reach the children least likely to thrive in school, and our early intervention can be enough to get them reading fluently by the time they move into secondary education.
AN EFFECTIVE APPROACH
The Schoolreaders model, which sees our volunteers deliver regular, short reading practice sessions, offers a proven formula for enhancing children's literacy skills; when you lend your support to Schoolreaders you can be sure that your donations and fundraising efforts are having the greatest possible impact.
WE'LL BE WORKING WITH YOU TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS
Whether your company joins us as a long-term supporter or whether a group of your staff chooses to run a one-off event with us, our corporate partnerships team will work closely with you. As well as finding ways to fulfil our own objectives, we'll be making sure that we build a partnership with you that delivers real business benefits while also enhancing your reputation and brand identity. As a partnership develops, we'll be sure to provide you with regular updates and case studies revealing how your support is helping us.
Everybody recognises the benefits of good literacy to the individual and to society as a whole, and the chance to support a scheme like Schoolreaders will be viewed positively by staff. Employees who take part in socially responsible initiatives can benefit in many ways, gaining a stronger feeling of team membership, enjoying a boost to morale, and ultimately strengthening their loyalty to an employer who demonstrates positive core values.
