Social Media and PR officer

Rebecca is the Social Media and PR officer at UK Reads. Rebecca was a producer in broadcast media and has many years of experience in public relations and Charity sector communications.

With a strong interest in education Rebecca is also a trained Teaching Assistant and understands first-hand about working with children to improve literacy.

I am passionate about children’s education and literacy is an interest very close to my heart. I believe in the power books and literacy can have in changing lives. I am also a mother of three children myself and I enjoy reading with them every day.

We can all escape into new experiences and expand our understanding of the World through imaginative and engaging stories. My own family now enjoy re-reading some of my old favourite books from childhood.
I love recycling books, sharing recommended reads between friends and family or buying second-hand bargains in charity shops and pre-loved books online.

From my experience working with children, I really enjoy introducing children to reading and it can be one book or reading experience, that can inspire a child or young person at any age. I am delighted to be able to make an impactful improvement to young people’s literacy through UK Reads and the World Literacy Foundation, putting my charity sector PR skills and schools experience to great use.
