Transforming young lives through literacy and English

Real Action is a community literacy charity. We teach deprived children aged 5 to 12 how to read and increase their fluency. Through our ‘Butterfly’ teaching programme, we’ve helped around 4,000 children to improve their reading age by an average of 12 months after 20 hours of classes since 1999.

Your kind gift of:

  • £10 could pay for a child’s reading session
  • £50 could train a volunteer to teach   
  • £100 could sponsor a child at our Saturday school for half a year

You give. We teach. They learn.
