The Reading Agency (United Kingdom)

We believe everything changes when we read. We are the leading charity inspiring people of all ages and all backgrounds to read for pleasure and empowerment. Working with our partners, our aim is to make reading accessible to everyone.

  • We are experts when it comes to inspiring people to read for pleasure and we’re making an impact across the UK through our programmes and partners.
  • We want everyone to discover what reading will give you, and recognise reading as a companion through life’s ups and downs.
  • We think reading should be accessible to everyone, we should be encouraged to read in a way that feels right for us, and we should share the joys of reading with those around us.

Every year we reach 1.5 million people through our reading programmes.

To inspire more people to read more, encourage them to share their enjoyment of reading and celebrate the difference that reading makes to all our lives.
