At Chapter One, we transform children's futures with one-to-one reading support at the time when they need it the most. Our Online Reading Volunteer programme connects schools and families with corporate volunteers. These volunteers spend 30 minutes reading online with the same child each week. We develop fundamental reading skills and inspire a love for reading from an early age, helping to build confidence in children who might otherwise slip through the cracks. We know that giving children the right support, at the right time, can transform their futures – no matter their circumstances today.
The Chapter One website also hosts our Global Free Library - an online collection of stories and materials that celebrate the world’s diversity. We commission authors and illustrators from around the globe to create original stories, told in their authentic voices, that will inspire the children and adults who read them.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
