Reading Matters is a charity and social enterprise. We help children, young people and adults to read with confidence and reach their potential.


Our dedicated volunteers are available in schools and other settings throughout Yorkshire to provide one to one reading support to children, young people and adults and help them read with confidence. We also deliver accredited training to schools’ own mentors.
