Sharing the magic of stories.
Your support has helped us to make sure parcels with specially chosen books, games and stationery get into the hands of thousands of looked-after children and children in need.
We have a long history of supporting children from vulnerable family backgrounds. Children in care or who are moving from one home to another often have complex and busy lives, disrupted routines and limited access to books or time for reading.
"To see Dylan improve at reading has been awesome. He began to read two pages at a time and I would just read one. We did that for another couple of months. Now, he reads independently, but he likes to tell me about the story.
"We also record all the books Dylan has read since he's got here on a reading chart, a piece of paper on his wall. We give each book a mark out five stars. The reading chart is very visual, it looks impressive. Dylan is like, 'I can't believe I've read all that!'"
