Letterbox Programme

The Letterbox Club is a unique reading programme for looked after children who are needing that little bit of extra support to build their confidence in reading and also their self-esteem.

Here in Hull, we have been lucky enough to run the Letterbox Club programme for 3 years, working with 70 looked after children in total!

We work specifically with looked after children in year groups 5, 6 and 7 and through one to one tutoring and personalised parcels, children are given high quality support to enable them a smooth transition from primary to secondary school.

The Letterbox Club is more than just a reading programme. It’s an opportunity to make friends, feel special, be rewarded, bond with carers and family and even visit some popular local attractions (yes, trips too!).

We are all about empowering children, whatever their circumstances, to believe in themselves.
