Welcome to BookTrust Cymru

BookTrust Cymru works to inspire a love of reading in children because we know that reading can transform lives.

Every year, we give out over 175,000 carefully chosen books to children in Wales and over 230,000 literacy and numeracy resources. This work is funded by the Welsh Government.

Our work supports every family in Wales from their child’s first year of life right through to the end of their Reception year in school, starting with the gift of two BookTrust books in the Bookstart Baby pack.
