About Us

The journey of a lifetime starts with the turning of a page"
- Rachel Anders, American Author


We believe that a strong reading habit has a transformational impact on a child. Worldwide research demonstrates that children who read for pleasure are better able to make sense of the world around them. Their self confidence grows, critical thinking is sharpened and socio-emotional skills strengthened. Other benefits include the building of a stronger vocabulary and greater comprehension skills.

To achieve this change, working only with the children is not sufficient. Schools have a vital role to play, and must be places where reading is valued and practised. Turning Pages works with schools to create systemic change. Our 5 pronged approach works with every aspect of a child's school life to bring about a "whole school reading culture". 

We are an impatient organisation. There are millions of children who deserve the lifelong benefits of strong reading habits, but are not getting the opportunity. Change is needed and it is needed fast. Our whole team is sharply focussed on the task at hand.
Turning Pages sessions are packed with fun, learning and deep discussions. At the core, are very carefully selected books. This is the soul of the programme.

Would you like to play a role  in helping underserved children by empowering them with the transformational habit of strong and joyful reading habits?
