About our group:

Read Easy Derby & District was set up in July 2021 and we are currently providing reading coach services in Derby City and Amber Valley.  In due course we will extend our range to include Erewash and South Derbyshire. If you know someone who struggles to read in these areas or would like to volunteer as part of our management team, please do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

Read Easy groups are financially independent from Read Easy UK, and we are responsible for raising all the money needed to keep our group going. If you would like to support our work, please get in touch to find out how.
