Coram Beanstalk is dedicated to helping children to become readers. They firmly believe that everyone deserves to achieve their potential and that reading is essential for this. Partnering with schools across the UK, they provide children with one-on-one reading helpers, who are a source of constancy, helping the young reader to grow in confidence.
Having previously given to help the charity to grow its outreach programme, The Symondson Foundation have committed to giving on a multi-year basis to the Reading Leaders Programme. This symbiotic scheme equips older peers with the skills to work with younger readers one-on-one, raising the latter up in confidence and reading ability, whilst also giving the former valuable experience for building their own future. Our grant will enable the training of pupils in secondary schools in Preston and Blackpool.
