“Discovering how wonderful reading is as a child brings joy that lasts a lifetime”
Read for Good’s vision is for all children in the UK to be given the opportunity, space and motivation to develop their own love of reading, benefiting them throughout their lives – for good.
One of the reasons kids don’t read is lack of motivation. One of the things that motivates kids is helping other kids. Our simple (but brilliant) idea is to link the two.
Numerous studies show that reading changes lives: from educational outcomes and social mobility to emotional well-being. There’s also ample evidence to demonstrate that enjoyment drives the core skill of reading and that motivation is an integral element of reading well. Our loop of children reading to help other children in hospital is both time-tested and ingenious.
We’re raising money and readers.
