Give a Book is dedicated to promoting books and the pleasure of reading in the hardest places. Our main work is in prisons, schools and with disadvantaged children.

Some of our projects include Books for First Nighters, Making it Up and Breakfast Book Clubs. We also supply books and support for Prison Reading GroupsBook Clubs in Schools, and dictionaries for Reading Ahead.

Give a Book is a UK registered charity, set up in 2011 in memory of writer and playwright Simon Gray, who loved to read and to share his reading.

Our Partners

In September 2017, Prison Reading Groups (PRG) became part of Give a Book. We work with PRG to supply books for Reading Groups and Family Days in over 60 UK prisons.

We are grateful to Daunt Books for their partnership and support over the years.
