Letterbox Club

Inspiring a love of reading and engagement with numeracy in children who are looked-after.

Across the UK, children are enrolled for the Letterbox Club by local authorities and schools. Each child receives their own colourful parcel of books, maths games, stationery and other high quality materials once every month for six months, from May to October.

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.

We receive some wonderful feedback from the children and adults. For our 15th annniversary, we're celebrating with some of our favourite hand-written postcards from children who receive Letterbox Club.

About the Letterbox Club

Once signed-up by their local authority or school, 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.

Local Authorities

Letterbox Club parcels can inspire a love of reading and engagement with numeracy for vulnerable children in your area. Local authorities can use Pupil Premium Plus for children who are looked-after and Pupil Premium for other vulnerable children, to fund Letterbox Club

Schools

As well as children who are looked-after, the programme is suitable for other children you think would benefit.
