- School Benefits
Reading support does not only substantially increase a child's reading levels but it also builds a child's self-esteem and aspirations and presents children with positive role models from business.
- Business Benefits
Becoming a reading support volunteer improves staff motivation and can cultivate a 'feel-good factor' in the company. The company also benefits from increased publicity and public profile, and the knowledge that they are contributing towards a future generation of literate employees and consumers.
Companies already involved with Right to Read include Eon, Freeths , Shoosmiths, Ricoh, Grant Thornton, Howse Percival, and Legal & General.
