We are a not-for-profit community organisation dedicated to bringing the gift of books and the joy of reading into the homes of families across London who need our support, reading with them and their children to inspire a love of books, of stories and storytelling, and to instil a lifelong passion for reading.
Please note: Our offices are based in Victoria, London. Currently, all staff are ‘working from home’ due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in line with government guidance. Most roles will be a mixture of home and office working going forward.
