How to sign up for Letterbox Club

Local authorities and schools can enrol children for Letterbox Club. Each participating child gets six colourful parcels of books, number games and stationery - one per month, usually from May to October.

The parcels are delivered to local authorities and schools, who personalise and distribute them to the children over this six-month period. We do not deliver directly to home addresses.

Registration is now closed for 2018. However, 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.

Sign-up for Letterbox Club 2019 opens on Thursday 1 November 2018 and will close on Friday 29 March 2019. Parcel deliveries will commence in early May 2019.

Local authorities and schools can use Pupil Premium Plus for looked after children and Pupil Premium for other vulnerable children, to fund the programme. The Letterbox Club has reached 11,600 children across the UK in 2018.
