Where does my money go?

BookTrust supports over 3.9 million families to read with their children with our books, guidance and resources. Here are some examples of the difference any donation, big or small, can make:

  • £10 could provide 6 pre-school children living in women's refuge centres with their own book pack.
  • £25 given by 4 people could provide a package of books and resources to a struggling secondary school.
  • £50 could provide 6 families from deprived communities with additional support through their children's centre to develop a reading habit.
  • £1,000 would allow us to send 14 special needs secondary schools a pack of 10 carefully chosen books to help children develop a love of reading and provide support for librarians and teachers.
  • £15,000 would enable us to send book packs to 740 children with a disability that impacts on motor skills, which includes a specially created touch and feel book, finger puppets and guidance for parents.
