Reading is nothing short of life-changing.
Children who read for pleasure are more likely to do well in school, have better paying jobs and better health and well-being. For children living in poverty or at risk of adverse childhood experiences, reading can be a literal escape route: offering both immediate relief and alternative pathways in life. A disadvantaged child who reads will outperform an advantaged child who doesn’t.
Read for Good’s mission is to improve the outcomes for all children in the UK by encouraging and enabling children to develop a love of reading.
