Right to Read

  • 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.

  • Time Commitment

After an initial training session and DBS check, this programme requires a commitment of one hour per week for one school term 10-12 weeks.
