Make a donation

The Reader is bringing about a Reading Revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, because we believe it can help humans survive and live well. Thanks to the support of our Friends, funders and volunteers, last year our Reading Revolution reached the milestone of 500 weekly Shared Reading group in the UK, reading with over 11,000 people.

Your donation makes a real difference – it allows us to train volunteers, provide resources for groups and help to ensure that anyone can attend a Shared Reading group, no matter their background, income or situation.
