Our Hospital Programme

For children in hospital, books and stories are particularly important – they comfort, distract, reassure and entertain, while also supporting disrupted learning. Read for Good provides a regular supply of brand new books along with storyteller visits to brighten up the days of children in all of the UK’s main children’s hospitals.

Children unable to leave their beds can choose books from our specially designed mobile bookcase which wheels right up to their bedside. Because they are brand new, the books are safe for those at high risk of infection.
