Read Gloucestershire! Information for media
Read Gloucestershire is a county-wide campaign to unleash and champion the power of reading for fun.
Schools across the county are joining forces with library services, community groups, theatres, sports clubs and festivals in a two-year initiative led by children’s charity, Read for Good.

“Over the last few years, we’ve been uniting schools across whole cities like Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester. Now it’s the turn of our home turf! There’s robust evidence underpinning our Read Gloucestershire campaign: not only do children who learn to love reading do better at school, but most of all – especially at the moment – reading builds empathy and is great for emotional wellbeing.”Justine Daniels, Read for Good CEO
READ Gloucestershire! is run by Read for Good with support from Gloucestershire Libraries, Gloucestershire Community Foundation, and John Lewis & Partners, Cheltenham.
