Ruskin Readers


Ruskin Readers are a voluntary organisation aiming to provide for adults with reading or writing difficulties, enabling them to take charge of their own lives.

  • Volunteers receive support from the club supervisor and professional speakers in the field of adult literacy
  • Volunteers work with an individual student, helping to develop
    heir learning skills and confidence for one two-hour session each week
  • Volunteers hold meetings about twice a year to discuss their students' progress and to exchange ideas and talk about future needs
  • Students are welcomed into a friendly cluband are assigned thier own tutor to work with from week to week
  • Students may set their own goals and targets for the basic skills they wish to develop and at their own pace
  • Counselling, advice and support are available for both learning skills and for the students' lives outside the club
  • Regular cultural outings are organised for all members. Local theatre and cinema are used as well as visits to museums and galleries

Well-attended sessions are run by Caroline Knapp.
