Geographical remit: 


We offer help to any adult who either cannot read, or who lacks confidence with reading and writing, to overcome these issues which can create many restrictions in their lives and can leave them isolated.. Learning to read leads to increased self esteem, more involvement in the community  and increased opportunities for employment.


Read Easy recruits, trains and supports volunteers to give one-to-one tuition to adults who struggle with reading. we operate a one-to-one approach, using a highly effective, phonics-based reading scheme, supported by other learning activities. It gives people the opportunity to work in quiet approved venues at their own pace building reading skills, confidence and self-esteem.

On completion of the reading scheme, we offer a second stage of literacy support to help new readers to consolidate their skills further and to give them the confidence to move on to other opportunities.
