Story Starters

We are proud to be involved with Story Starters.

Story Starters is a new programme that has been made possible by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. It will make a life-changing difference to the lives of 1,800 nursery children through the support of over 500 volunteers by 2019, ensuring that they start primary school ready to read.

Trained Story Starter volunteers provide caring and fun one-to-one support to children in our Foundation 1, aiding their language development and introducing them to the magic of stories.  Along with the trained, caring support provided by Story Starter volunteers, each child receives high-quality resources from Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library so that they can enjoy the magic of stories at home.
