How to sign up for Letterbox Club

Each participating child gets six parcels - one parcel every month, usually from May to October. The parcels are delivered to local authorities and schools, who then personalise and distribute them to the children over this six-month period.

Sign-up for the 2018 programme is now open

Local authorities and schools can use Pupil Premium Plus for looked after children and Pupil Premium for other vulnerable children, to fund the programme. Letterbox Club reached 11,000 children across the UK in 2017.

If you are a local authority or school interested in finding out more about Letterbox Club, please call the team on 020 7801 8805 or email letterbox@booktrust.org.uk .
