We are a local charity whose aim is to support teachers in improving literacy standards across Norfolk.
We do this by providing trained volunteers to support children's reading on a one-to-one basis within Primary Schools. This is completely free of charge for schools.
Our volunteers are given an understanding of the importance of phonics in learning to read, in line with the emphasis placed on this in the New National Curriculum. This focus on phonics is particularly welcomed by teachers as it supports rather than conflicts with their class teaching.
Our charity was started in 2015 in response to increasing concern about reading standards across the county and the impact this has on future prospects. In the last few years we have trained over 400 volunteers and we are supporting more than 50 schools throughout the county.
We are a non-affiliated organisation whose sole aim is to improve children's reading skills and lifetime opportunities. Reg. charity no: 1176987. Our email is: email@example.com

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.
