Give the gift of story time with dad this Father's Day

Watch our Fathers Reading Every Day appeal by Sir Tony Robinson
 

Please support our FRED crowdfunding campaign
We want to bring FRED to 3,000 children and their dads in the UK this year – which means marketing it to schools before the holidays start. 

With no government funding for this groundbreaking programme, we're crowdfunding to raise £5,000 for a big marketing push. Please head over to our crowdfunding page to find out more and make your pledge now.

You can donate in your name, in your child’s name, or to salute a loved father - and choose from a range of fantastic rewards. Why not celebrate this Father’s Day by investing in a present that really makes a difference: the gift of story time with dad.

 
For too many of our children, story time with dad is just not happening. One UK father in three reads to his young child no more often than once a month.

FRED is the only family reading programme targeted specifically at dads: it gets them into the reading habit and results in stunning outcomes. 


Our pilot study found that FRED children were four times more likely to exceed their school achievement targets than their peers. Their vocabulary widens, their reading improves and so do their behaviour and their maths!   A very high number of boys take part and disadvantaged children make the greatest progress.

Help us bring FRED to 3,000 more children: pledge now
