Support us

A love of books changes lives. Children who read for pleasure are likely to do better at school, as well as be more socially, culturally and emotionally prepared for life.

In fact, reading enjoyment is more important for a child's educational success than their family's financial or social status. There are lots of ways that you can help BookTrust change lives by getting children and families reading.

Thank you!

A big thank you to everyone who donated to the BookTrust Christmas appeal, with your generous support, we have sent surprise book gifts to 14,250 children who are vulnerable or in care in the run-up to Christmas. Your gift helped the children feel special during the festive period.

Help more children in 2021 with books and reading support by becoming a BookTrust Friend.
