Being able to read proficiently is fundamental to everything we do in life and in work – and teaching children to read and inspiring a love of it within them is hugely beneficial, not just for the potential prospects it creates for them, but for their overall well-being and sense of self.

Time to Read’ a Business in the Community Ireland initiative is a community-based programme whereby volunteers give their time to provide one-to-one reading support for young children (aged between 7-8 years old) in primary schools around the country, with the aim of helping them become more proficient readers.
