Supporting children to read confidently and achieve their potential

ABC to read provides reading mentors to work with children who are struggling with their reading and confidence.  ABC matches one of our trained volunteers with schools and the volunteer attends school twice a week and spends half an hour each with up to 3 children. ABC also offers workshops to show parents how they can support their children at home.
