Who Is Beanstalk?
Beanstalk is a UK-wide children’s literacy charity that was established over 45 years ago. They provide one-to-one support to children from disadvantaged backgrounds who struggle with reading. They follow the core values of ‘reading, growing, thriving’, and as well as supporting the nation’s children, they promote the benefits of intergenerational volunteering.
To give you a clearer view of the amazing work they do, last year they provided training and ongoing support to more than 3,700 volunteers who, in turn, offered impactful reading support to over 13,000 children.
