Helping children to develop an interest and love of Reading & Learning

BGFA have developed a mobile library to help motivate and encourage young people to get into the habit of reading. We are cautious that some children especially those that come into care find reading a challenge and may need extra support and mentoring.Some children especially those that come into care find reading a challenge and may need extra support and mentoring.

Without individual support, children can fall behind their peers and lack confidence and self-esteem.

Many may find it difficult to interact socially with adults and in later years they may drift into offending behaviours.

Foster carers and or support workers will support the child / young person by spending quality time on a one  to one basis when they will read, play and talk.

With the support the child / young person’s approach to learning and enjoying is often transformed. Their confidence, self-esteem and reading standards improve.
