What we do

There are 11,000 adults in Stockport who either cannot read at all or can barely read. For them, everyday tasks such as booking a doctors appointment, reading road signs or doing the food shopping can be incredibly challenging.

There are lots of different reasons why people do not learn to read in childhood. For some it may have been a lack of support from their own family or school, for others it may have been undiagnosed dyslexia. But people should not feel ashamed or embarrassed about it.

We offer free and confidential one-to-one coaching from trained volunteers. In normal circumstances reading pairs meet twice a week at approved local venues to work for just half an hour at a time through a structured, phonics-based reading programme. This can take up to 2 or more years to complete.

We are friendly, welcoming, and here to help, whatever your age.
