Funding for Home Reading in Scotland

Funding
Skills for Life Network

Over 300 Scottish schools, nurseries and community groups are set to get home reading projects off the ground, thanks to a cash injection from the Home Reading Initiative Small Grants Scheme

‘The Home Reading Initiative Small Grants Scheme, encourages parent and carers to read with their child from an early age by providing start-up costs for sustainable projects that encourage home reading. Staff costs, travel and subsistence are not funded.

The groups, who all applied for a share of the £300,000 worth of grants to support reading projects are part of ‘Read Together’, the Executive’s home reading initiative.

The Executive is also distributing a new interactive CD-Rom to nurseries and libraries throughout Scotland. The CD-Rom is designed to appeal to children and adults and contains information, advice and games for parents and children to enjoy together.

The website www.readtogether.co.uk offers ideas about reading and recommended books, alongside encouragement from Reading Champions of all ages, from all over Scotland.

The Executive’s Home Reading Initiative Small Grants Scheme was this year administered by Learning and Teaching Scotland.’
