Why your support matters

We are working to bring about a reading revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, because we believe it’s a tool for helping humans to survive and to live well. Your support is vital and will help us;

  • Engage children and families in unique and wonderful reading experiences

  • Improve wellbeing and reducing social isolation through our national network of Shared Reading groups

  • Sustain a vibrant programme at Calderstones that is open to all and brings people together and books to life
