ABC to read

Assisting Berkshire Children to Read (ABC to read) aims to advance the education and self confidence of children in Berkshire, particularly by helping them overcome reading difficulties thereby promoting their general well being.

We recruit and train volunteers from local communities in Berkshire to give individual mentoring to children in primary and secondary schools. Volunteers usually have 3 children assigned to them and ideally, visit school twice a week, spending half an hour individually with each child they support, reading, talking and playing games. The children who most benefit from this type of help are those who receive little or no support at home, children with English as an additional language and shy, unconfident children.
