About our work in general
Reading is nothing short of life-changing – a child who chooses to read for pleasure is more likely to do well in school, have a better job and better health and wellbeing. Since 1984, Read for Good has been motivating children to love reading through its tailor made programmes in schools, hospitals and communities. Countless studies show that a love of reading at an early age changes lives, from educational outcomes to social mobility and emotional wellbeing.
Read for Good believes that children should be free to choose what they want to read, all reading should be valued, and reading for pleasure should be unassessed.
Readathon sponsored read motivates pupils to read as the money raised by reading provides books and storytelling for children in hospital, and books for schools throughout the UK. Our wide range of high quality, freely available resources help teachers and school librarians to engage their pupils in reading for fun – minimal effort for maximum output!
For children in hospital, books and stories are vital – they provide essential distraction and entertainment as well as comfort and reassurance, for both children and their visitors. Read for Good’s hospital programme regularly provides brand new books and visits from professional storytellers, reaching all 30 of the UK’s major children’s hospitals.
Many of our resources can be used by parents and carers to help engage children in reading for pleasure. Our Book Reviews help to inform reading choices; and Track My Read, a web-app developed in lockdown, helps to make reading for pleasure fun, and connect reading at home with school requirements.
- Read for Good’s citywide programme builds a buzz about books and stories across specific cities and regions, offering a multitude of reading initiatives, resources, access to brand new books and high profile author events. Our focussed resources and activities combine to unite and galvanise whole communities in reading for fun.
