Each child receives their own colourful parcel of books, maths games, stationery every month for six months. For many children, it's the first time they have had a letter or a parcel through the post and for some it's the first time they have had books of their own.
Letterbox Club 2017 is now closed but there is some stock available - find out how you can still sign up, and when registration for the 2018 programme opens.
Letterbox Club parcels can help improve the educational outlook for children who are looked-after in your area. Local authorities can use Pupil Premium Plus for looked after children and Pupil Premium for other vulnerable children, to fund Letterbox Club.
As well as children who are looked-after, the programme is suitable for other children you think would benefit. Schools can enrol as few or as many children as they wish. Many schools have said that the Letterbox Club would also support vulnerable children who are on the edge of being in care.
The coordinators' area provides useful information and resources to help you administer the programme - delivery dates, parcel contents, book descriptions, template letters and feedback forms. Letterbox coordinators have been sent details of how to access the coordinators’ area, please get in touch if you haven’t received this or need other assistance.
