Hello, we’re Bookmark.
We want every child to read.

IN AN AVERAGE CLASS, 8 CHILDREN LEAVE PRIMARY SCHOOL UNABLE TO READ WELL.

These children often struggle in school, and beyond. 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 and the prescription that could help save your life.

Imagine a world without words.

For millions of people, this is a reality. Watch our video and find out more about literacy in the UK.

WHEN CHILDREN CAN NAVIGATE WORDS, THEY CAN NAVIGATE THE WORLD.

We’re helping children develop the reading skills they need to succeed in school and beyond, by creating flexible volunteering at the heart of our communities. Find out more.

For the children who need us, we’re changing their story.

If you’d like to change a child’s story by becoming a Bookmark volunteer, find out more about our
6-week flexible volunteering programme.
