Give a Book is a charity dedicated to promoting books and the pleasure of reading in the hardest places. Our core belief is that to pass on a good read-to give a book-is a transaction of lasting worth. Our main areas of work are in prisons, schools and with disadvantaged children & young people throughout the UK.
Give a Book works in partnership with other charities and groups to set up reading projects, choosing age appropriate, specially selected books for projects. We provide creative, innovative ways of leading to reading and offer practical solutions to encourage an enjoyment of reading. With our volunteers we provide books, book bags, writing materials and expertise to projects benefitting adults and children.
Current projects and recipients include; School Breakfast Book Clubs, Prison Reading Groups, Reading Ahead Prison Literacy Challenge, Mother & Baby Units, Books in the Nick, Books for First Nighters, Prison Family Days, Mental Health Unit book clubs and various literacy projects. We also do a whole school reading project in a different school every year.
