Help a child in Putney or Wandsworth read in 2020
Try something new and help a child in Putney learn to read!
On average 8 children in each class in England left primary school last year unable to read well, whilst 1 in 8 children from disadvantaged backgrounds don’t have a single book at home.
By volunteering at a school in Putney twice a week you can give a child who is struggling to read essential one-to-one support. During 30-minute sessions, you can help a child, age 5 – 8, develop their skills, extend their vocabulary and find enjoyment in books, whilst using the Bookmark app to connect with your nearest school and choose sessions at times that suit you.
Find out how you can change a child’s story this January by visiting www.bookmarkreading.org/volunteer or get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
