Welcome to BookTrust Northern Ireland
Through our reader development programmes and work as an arts organisation, BookTrust in Northern Ireland makes a positive impact on children, families and local communities.
In line with the rest of the UK our aim is to ensure that everyone has access to books in their home and is inspired to engage with the world of reading for pleasure and to improve their life chances.
BookTrust programmes in Northern Ireland
There is currently no government funding for Bookstart in NI, but BookTrust NI is working hard to form alternative partnerships to deliver as many Bookstart packs as possible, along with author tours and annual National Bookstart Week celebrations.
The Letterbox Club in Northern Ireland is funded by Fostering Network Northern Ireland as part of its Fostering Achievement programme, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Government. Once signed-up each child receives their own colourful parcel of books, maths games, stationery every month for six months.
