Doorstep Library Network

Charity description

Doorstep Library Network logo
Doorstep Library brings books and the magic of reading directly to the homes of children in some of London's most disadvantaged areas.

Direct into their homes, volunteers read with the children, lend them books, befriend the families and offer support. As a charity we're unique in this. We do it because poor reading skills are inextricably linked to economic disadvantage and reduced life possibilities. Our work improves not just reading skills, but confidence, self-esteem, articulacy, social integration, academic performance and even long-term employment prospects.

Words have the power to take children places, not just in their minds, but in their lives. We currently visit 500 children every week. By 2020, we aim to be visiting 2000 children across 6 London boroughs. Your fundraiser can help us to achieve this.
