OUR STRATEGY

The Reading Corner is a dedicated organisation that strives to bridge the literacy gap among marginalised youth in schools, hospitals, and underserved communities.

There are 400.000 children in the UK who don't own a single book. Almost 3M children don't see themselves represented in the books they read.

Our Vision

Our non-profit represents the evolution of philanthropy and seeks to engage new generations of donors who believe in using charity work to address inequality. We aim to cultivate a community of like-minded individuals dedicated to making a positive impact on the world.

Our Mission

The mission of The Reading Corner is to bring literature to disadvantaged communities and promote diversity and inclusivity in the publishing industry. We aim to create meaningful literary experiences for both writers and readers, empowering new voices to make a positive impact and inspire change.
