  • Read our latest Impact Report!

    We’ve just published our latest Impact Report for the academic year 2014-15.  This year we’ve helped 6417 children and young people to improve their reading skills, confidence and self-esteem. 96% of all children demonstrate an improved performance in reading! The report is compiled with information provided by both Reading Mentors and Reading Leaders.

    Our CEO, Rachel Kelly, is running the Leeds 10K Abbey Dash in November and raising money for Reading Matters. Rachel has only recently taken up running so this really is something to aim for! If you wish, you can sponsor Rachel here:

Reading Matters’ services really work. They improve reading for children and young people; enhancing reading comprehension, word recognition, language development, communication skills, confidence and self-esteem.

Please take a look at our short film about who we are and what we do.

“I am really impressed with the quality of the training and support provided by Reading Matters. Our Reading Leaders have found that they are benefitting from the work alongside their partners. It is helping with self confidence and self esteem and the students are thriving on the responsibility that the role requires.”
