Save the Children UK

The Read On. Get On. campaign has brought together a wide range of organisations to take action towards a historic goal for the UK: all children should be reading well by the age of 11 by 2025.

Reading England’s Future charts the geography of reading disadvantage in England, by comparing the reading ability of poor children across parliamentary constituencies. The research finds that every area in the country needs to make significant improvements; however, some have further to travel than others.

This report provides new analysis on the types of areas that face the biggest challenges in getting all children reading well, and calls on local communities to join the campaign and to support and promote our goal.
