Read Easy

Read Easy is a well established charity that provides 1.1 support for learners.  The reading coaches are volunteers who are carefully selected and trained.  The teaching manual “Yes we can read” has won the People’s Book Prize Special Achievement Award for 2011.   The learner meets with the reading coach for 2 half hour sessions each week in a mutually convenient place (where other people are around) and it takes between 6 months and 18 months for the learner to progress to a reading age of 11 years. 

There is more information on the Read Easy website    http://www.readeasy.org.uk/
