About our group:

Read Easy Norfolk affiliated in September 2022 and we are currently focussing on supporting adults who want to learn to read in Norwich and Dereham.

In April 2024 HM Lord Lieutenant, Lady Dannatt MBE became their Patron, she said,

‘I am honoured and delighted to be asked to be a Patron of Read Easy Norfolk.

REN reminds of everything we are trying to push for in this wonderful country of ours, and for me to be able to champion a cause like this is fantastic.

The incredible work of the Read Easy volunteers fits in with the ethos of everything we as a Lieutenancy support, and I will certainly do what I can to spread the word.’
