Read Manchester

Manchester school banner

Read Manchester is led in partnership with Manchester City Council and engages local families with books and stories, and inspires them to make reading a priority in their everyday lives.

With a focus on the area of Wythenshawe, we work with children and young people as they reach each milestone in their education, helping to end the vicious cycle of illiteracy.
