To provide Reading for Life at a priority school in Liverpool LGA.
Reading for Life is an evidence-based program* providing one-on-one support to primary school children with reading disorders. The program is aimed at achieving measurable sustainable change and involves providing schools with volunteers to help children weekly for 15 weeks to improve their literacy skills and enhance their self-esteem and confidence. The goal is to fill existing literacy gaps of struggling children, including refugees, and encourage them to feel good about themselves as learners.
