Working through community-based volunteer groups, Read Easy offers a free, friendly, flexible approach to learning to read for adults who either can’t read at all, or who lack confidence with reading.
Its success is founded on 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 private and at their own pace and builds reading skills, confidence and self-esteem.
On completion of the reading scheme, Read Easy offers 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.
Read Easy UK is the umbrella organisation and registered charity that enables volunteers to set up Read Easy groups in their own areas. Read Easy UK is governed by a Board of Trustees and is run from a small head office in north Gloucestershire. Every week, Read Easy UK receives enquiries from adults across the UK, either interested in volunteering or looking for support with reading.
