Doncaster Stories book delivery

Doncaster Stories is a community driven campaign, which means we need as many local businesses and people involved as possible.

Whether you can volunteer your time, work in your local community, fundraise for our work or donate to our mission, we need your help.

  • All of Doncaster's constituencies have high literacy need

    Our research found that two thirds of all wards in Doncaster's constituencies are vulnerable to low levels of literacy.

  • Last year, 1 in 3 11 year-olds left primary school unable to read well

    This rises to almost half (49%) of pupils on free school meals

  • But secondary school pupils are improving

    In 2019, 62% of 16-year-olds achieved Grade 4 or above in both Eglish and Maths GCSEs closing the gap on national averages
