More about what we do and why

The Letterbox Club

The Letterbox Club

The Letterbox Club aims to inspire a love of reading and engagement with numeracy in children aged 3-13 who are looked-after. They are enrolled by local authorities and schools, and receive monthly parcels of books and educational materials.

Why reading matters

How we make a difference

BookTrust supports children and families to experience the joy of reading and its associated benefits through our programmes and activities.

How to support us

Help us get families reading

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.
