Vetlife

Bookmark

Bookmark was started in 2018 with a simple vision: we want every child to read. 7.1 million adults in England struggle to read and face challenges like these every day – at home, on the move, in the workplace, and with their friends and families.

    Reading isn’t just about books. It’s about reading a road sign, a safety manual, a birthday card. It’s understanding a job application, the latest Covid-19 guidance or an important letter from your bank. We give children the reading skills and confidence they need for a fair chance in life, through our flexible volunteer-led programme. With all the disruption to children’s learning during the pandemic, our reading support is needed now more than ever.
