Charity & Community

BookTrust

Book Trust helps bring children and families together around books and stories. Last year Book Trust reached 4 million children, through working with community health care professionals and with direct book donations, to engage families in the benefits of reading with children from a young age.   

Their work builds confidence and skills amongst parents and carers,  brings families together around books and stories and engages them with local libraries, building community support networks.
