How to sign up for Letterbox Club

Each participating child gets six parcels - one parcel every month, usually from May to October. The parcels are delivered to local authorities and schools, who then personalise and distribute them to the children over this six-month period.

The 2017 programme is now closed but some stock is still available if you'd like to sign up late. The cost is £145 per child, including VAT (£138.75 without VAT).

Sign-up for the 2018 programme will open on 1 November and run until 29 March 2018. The parcels will then be delivered between May and October next year.

Local authorities and schools can use Pupil Premium Plus for looked after children and Pupil Premium for other vulnerable children, to fund the programme. Letterbox Club reached 11,000 children across the UK in 2017.

If you are a local authority or school interested in finding out more about Letterbox Club, please call the team on 020 7801 8805 or email .
