Where does my money go?

BookTrust supports over 2.5 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:

£15 would give a deaf child a special book pack with books, signing guidance and further advice for parents on sharing stories.

£93 would help 11 families receive personalised help and support through their children's centre to develop a daily reading habit.

£306 would help us give 200 pre-schoolers a book pack to enjoy at home with their parent or carer to help them on their reading journey.

£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.
