We recognise what a challenging time this is for everyone involved in education. We at Read for Good appreciate all that you are doing, and we’re here to help in whatever way we can.

We have Inspiring Ideas to encourage children at home to read for pleasure, all you need to know to run Readathon remotely to unite pupils in a shared purpose, and please use our new Track My Read to engage pupils in reading for pleasure wherever they are, providing rich insights for teachers at the same time.

If we can help in any other way, please email us at reading@readforgood.org and we’ll try to help. In the meantime, please take a moment to watch our special message to schools from the lovely Greg James.


Join our reading adventures!

Read for Good motivates children to read for fun because we know that loving reading changes lives.

Our regular supply of beautiful, brand-new books and visits from professional storytellers, offer children in hospital the chance to escape to other worlds in their imagination. Find out more here.

Children in schools are motivated to read using our free Readathon kits, which encourage them to choose whatever they like to read, from comics to classics, and audio books to blogs, all whilst raising money to get books to children in hospital, and books for their school.
