About our group:

Read Easy Shropshire Hills was formed in early 2019 with the aim of providing adults in one of the most rural parts of the country with free, confidential one-to-one help with reading.

We have successfully developed online coaching which has allowed us to expand our service over a wider area. By working closely with neighbouring Read Easy groups, we now offer reading coaching to anyone in Shropshire as well as reaching into Herefordshire and Powys.

If you know someone who struggles with reading and you would like to find out more, please call one of our Coordinators. Your call will be completely confidential.

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 directly, please donate using the links below.
