Our Partners and Supporters

We are a charity and receive no state funding for our work.  Our work is supported by the thousands of school members who use our resources and come on our training. As well as this we work with a wide range of like-minded partners to help us ensure primary age children become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers, with all the benefits this brings. Our partners include:

We are always looking for new partners and if your organisation would be interested in working with us or supporting our work please contact our marketing and commmunications manager Sarah James who will be pleased to help you. 

By becoming a corporate partner your company can benefit in different ways. We can work with you to create CSR events and opportunities which are meaningful and motivating for staff, raising morale. We can ensure your company has a strong brand presence at high profile events such as the CLPE Poetry Award (CLiPPA). We can present opportunities to link your company with primary literacy education and children’s literature.
