Give a Book relies entirely on the generosity of those who care about giving books. We would like to thank all of our individual supporters who help to ‘promote books and the pleasure of reading in the hardest places.’ We are especially grateful to the following for their generosity:

The Royal Society of Literature


We are delighted to have a partnership with the Royal Society of Literature.

The RSL has generously supplied foreign language books that are so needed in the prisons we work with.

Many RSL authors support us by providing resources and book recommendations for Finding a Good Read and by making visiting prison libraries and Prison Reading Groups.



World Of Books

We are honoured and so grateful to be generously supported by the new World of Books (Wob) foundation.

World of Books Group has launched a new independent charity, The Wob Foundation. 100% of donations raised by the charity will go directly to causes that support literacy and the circular economy.

The donation from World of Books means that we can get more books into the hands of those who need them the most helping to foster reading for pleasure environments in every place that we work. To read more about WOB’s new foundation click here.



A special thank you to the supporters of Prison Reading Groups:


Support us with free books for Reading Groups, Family Days and Raising Readers.




The Trust have generously supported our family reading initiatives for almost ten years and it has made an enormous difference.




The national prisoners’ newspaper publishes PRG’s regular columns, Finding a Good Read and Reading Group Roundup.
