Book Buddies

Book Buddies

Book Buddies can work successfully with children to address reading difficulties and boost their reading age. The reading scheme supports the acquisition of good reading skills and is designed to improve the way children read, enabling them to be independent problem-solvers who read with understanding and enjoyment.

Book Buddies is a targeted, time-limited, one-to-one intervention.


Could you be a Reading Volunteer?

We are looking for parents, carers, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other grown-ups to read with our children at Air Balloon Hill.

Do you have any spare time to support children with their reading? We offer full training, support and sometimes tea and biscuits! If you would like to find out more, please contact

Becky Cox –

We will carry out an enhanced DBS check for all volunteers, as it is requirement


Silver Stories

Children phone a Silver Listener and read a short story or a chapter of their book to them. This helps our readers to become more confident in their reading skills and our Silver Listeners can enjoy listening to a story whilst they sit in a comfy chair!
