We do this by providing volunteers to hear children read on a one-to-one basis within Primary Schools.
Our volunteers are given an understanding of the importance of phonics in leaning to read, in line with the emphasis placed on this in the New National Curriculum 2014. This focus on phonics is particularly welcomed by teachers as it supports rather than conflicts with their class teaching.
Our charity was started in response to increasing concern about reading standards across the county and the impact this has on future prospects. Inspired by the Realaction charity in London we developed the idea of providing trained volunteers to support the work of teachers in schools.
We are a non-affiliated organisation whose sole aim is to improve children's reading skills and lifetime opportunities.

We are a charity whose aim is to help all children learn to read by providing voluntary practical support in communities where it is needed most.
Good literacy skills underpin all learning and success in later life but nationally many children leave school unable to read and write properly.
Here in Norfolk educational attainment is well below the national average. Together we can help to change this.
We will provide trained DBS checked Reading Support Volunteers, who will regularly listen to children read on a one-to-one basis in schools.
During term time in a school near you!
We need Reading Support Volunteers and also those with other skills to help organise and raise funds to support the charity.
