Opportunities with Read Easy Northampton

Read Easy Northampton is the Northampton group of the national Read Easy charity. Our aim is to help adults to learn to read. The national statistics show that 7% of adults in the UK can’t read at all or very well. This means that in Northampton there are more than 10,000 people who need our help. We provide structured one-to-one tuition. The learner is introduced to a coach and they agree meeting times and a venue local to the learner, often a library or area in a community centre. The service is free, flexible and effective. The coaches are all volunteers, who have undertaken Read Easy training and follow the structured learning programme to ensure the learner is encouraged to become confident in all reading.
