In an average class, 8 children leave primary school unable to read well.
These children often struggle in school, and beyond. Reading isn't just about books. It's about reading a road sign, a safety manual, a birthday card. It's understanding a job application or an important letter from your bank.
Bookmark reading charity gives children the reading skills and confidence they need for a fair chance in life through a volunteer-led programme. For the children who need us, we're changing their story.
WHO ARE BOOKMARK READING CHARITY?
WHAT ARE WE DOING TO SUPPORT BOOKMARK?
Throughout 2023, each of our staff will take part in six-week reading programmes. The programme involves two 30-minute sessions a week with the same child between 5 and 10 years, for six weeks.
During the summer, we will be carrying out a company-wide fundraising event to support the vital work of Bookmark.
We will also be supporting Bookmark by offering to carry out a qualitative research project free of charge.
