What we do

Christmas Appeal

A gift this Christmas will help us reach babies and children living in poverty with vital books and literacy support.

  • A gift of £10 could provide two children with their very first books to keep at home.
  • A gift of £25 could provide five baby literacy packs to new parents. 
  • A gift of £50 could give a child the confidence they need to join in at story time with the support of a literacy mentor.

Please donate to give the power of literacy to children today.  

Distribute books to children in need

Working closely with our book partners we are able to provide books within a three week turnaround to children who do not own a book at home of their own. To send a book request, please email info@ukreads.org.uk. 

We need to know:  

  • How many books 
  • Gender splits 
  • Age categories 
  • If you have a particular themes/ topic that we can try to help you with.  

Access to books

If you are part of a project that is in need of books then we want to hear about it and help.
