Our Beanstalk volunteers provide one-to-one literacy support to children who need help with their reading.  These trained reading helpers give them the support they need to improve their reading ability and confidence.

Beanstalk reading helpers are trained to recognise what challenges each child faces and tailor their sessions to support each child.

Each Beanstalk trained reading helper works with on average three children and provides consistent support on a weekly basis, for a whole school year. Together, they read, play and talk.

Beanstalk one-to-one reading support changes the child’s life: 

·        Improving their reading ability

·        Inspiring confidence in their own ability

·        Increasing their enjoyment of reading
