Beanstalk- Can you inspire a child to read?

Coram Beanstalk’s service is simple yet highly effective. We recruit, train and support volunteers to provide consistent, one-to-one reading support to children aged 3-13 who need our help. Our reading helpers give them the support they need to improve their reading skills, reading ability and confidence. We also provide training to people within the school community who want to help children learn to read for pleasure whilst improving their reading skills. 

 Each Beanstalk reading helper works with three children and sees each child for two 30 minute sessions a week, during term-time, for a whole year. Together, they read, play and talk with Beanstalk's support the child's approach to learning and enjoying reading is often transformed.

In order to carry on the valuable work we do in primary schools to help children discover the magic of reading, we need more volunteers from Sefton.
