Please donate now and give a child the gift of reading.
Our dedicated team of specialist teachers work passionately with children in the local community to overcome barriers to learning and nourish in them an enriching love of reading.
As we receive no core funding from central or local government, we rely on donations and fund-raising events. You can support the vital work we do in the local community by donating to The Dyslexia Teaching Centre.

High literacy rates are essential for a thriving, sustainable economy.
They contribute to a fairer society and promote social cohesion.
We work in partnership with local businesses to raise literacy rates of children in the Kensington community. Your business can be at the centre of our work in schools, changing lives and raising literacy levels. By choosing the Dyslexia Teaching Centre as your charity partner, you will have a direct impact in your community.
Sponsoring one of our outreach programmes in a local school is an excellent way to empower children to learn, whilst building a positive awareness of your brand.

Volunteer with us
We always have a handful of volunteers working with some of the children we teach.
We choose our volunteers carefully, matching them with each child.
There may be a variety of reasons why you may want to volunteer. Other volunteers join us for perhaps a year, gaining useful experience while giving valuable time and attention to our children. Three of our former volunteers have subsequently completed specialist training; one of them is now a tutor in our outreach team.
Sometimes a volunteer has a dyslexic child of her own and has seen the benefit he/she gained through one-to-one attention. Through volunteering she can extend this benefit to our bursary children, using her own extensive experience at home.
Our volunteers go to the schools between our lessons to read with the children and consolidate the work we have done. Equally important, they build sound relationships with the children, giving them one-to-one attention, a chance to chat to an adult and making them feel special. A volunteer may work with a child for a term or two or a couple of years, depending on the child’s needs. Sometimes when our specialist tutors have completed their two-year programme with our children, a volunteer takes over for the next school year, making sure the skills and confidence gained by the child are not lost.
We are always on the look-out for more volunteers so please do get in touch if you are interested in being part of our outreach team.
