From 30th November-7th December, we are taking part in the Big Give, meaning all donations made between these dates will be doubled.

We work to lift young people out of poverty through the power of literacy

At UK Reads we believe every child, no matter their circumstances should have access to books and to the literacy support they need so that they can experience the joy of reading and have endless opportunities in their life.

The UK illiteracy statistics are startling.

413,000* children do not own a single book and in 5 children struggle to read and write.  

These numbers are continuously growing and children from low income families are the most at risk of illiteracy. We are here to support them.

Despite this digital world we believe it is an essential life skill for a child to become confident in literacy. At UK Reads we want children to know the pure joy of escaping into stories, learning new wordsthe pride of completing a book, all the while setting strong foundations for their futures.
