About the group:

Bridport Read Easy group started up in 2011, when Vee Driscoll, who had trained as a Coach with the Dorchester and Weymouth group, offered to be a Pioneer and then Coordinator for a new group in Bridport. We have offered help with reading and writing to over 50 adults, working alongside them to encourage and support them on their learning journey. At least half of our readers have completed the course and moved on with their lives, but there is no time limit on learning to read; our volunteers continue to provide support until readers feel they have the confidence to take responsibility for their own learning and can become increasingly independent.

We cover Bridport, Lyme Regis and Beaminster areas. Originally we also had readers in Axminster and Honiton, but these are now Read Easy groups in their own right.
