BookTrust is the largest reading charity in the UK. BookTrust supports children and families to experience the joy of reading and its associated benefits. Find out more about the impact of our programmes and activities.
They work to inspire a love of reading in children because we know that reading can transform lives. They give out over 5 million carefully chosen books to children throughout the UK; every parent receives a BookTrust book in the baby’s first six months.
Their books, guidance and resources are delivered via health, library, schools and early years practitioners, and are supported with advice and resources to encourage the reading habit.
Reading for pleasure has a dramatic impact on educational outcomes, well-being and social mobility, and is also a huge pleasure in itself. They are committed to starting children on their reading journey and supporting them throughout.See more
