Book Trust (United Kingdom)
Book Trust is an independent literacy charity that makes a nationwide impact on individuals, families and communities UK and Ireland.
We encourage and support reading for pleasure. The benefits of reading start from early on in a child’s life – reading to a child for ten minutes every day can greatly develop their language skills. We start at the earliest possible age as we believe children who have an early introduction to reading benefit in many ways; educationally, socially, culturally and emotionally.
Our work supports children and young people, parents and carers and indeed anyone who would benefit from the positive impact that reading can have on their lives.
We want individuals of all backgrounds to benefit from the wellbeing that a rich and positive engagement in reading can bring.
A society where nobody misses out on the life-changing benefits that reading can bring.
To transform lives by getting children and families reading.
