About the group:

Thank you for visiting our page! 

 We are Read Easy Weston-super-Mare and we cover the whole town from Uphill to Worle. Our Read Easy group is recently established and we are looking forward to enabling people to learn to read in 2020 and beyond. 

 Read Easy W-S-M is run entirely by volunteers under the headship of Read Easy UK. Our Team Leader is Tim Bull and you can contact him for any further information and queries you may have. Alternatively for help finding a suitable coach, contact our Coordinators Kate and Lorraine, see above.

 If we’re your nearest group, here are some ways to be involved:


Learn to read:

1:1 coaching takes place twice a week for 30 minutes per session in a safe and semi-private space.  You must be over 18 years of age and have a good standard of spoken English.  We provide all the reading materials you need and the service is completely free.

 If you, or someone you know, lives in Weston-Super-Mare and would like to learn to read then please do get in touch with Tim, Kate or Lorraine on one of the numbers above and they will be happy to take you through the application process.

The role of a Coach

What do coaches do? After a one day training workshop, coaches are matched with a suitable Reader. Coaches then meet with a reader twice a week for 30 minutes at a time.

We provide all the materials needed and offer our coaches regular support throughout.

Helping someone to read is an extremely rewarding task, our coaches are highly valued.

 If you are interested in volunteering with us please contact our volunteer recruiter Sue Hobson by email.

Support us!

Read Easy Weston-Super-Mare is a new group so we’d be grateful for any donations. If you might be able to offer us a venue, for training or otherwise, we’d love to hear from you. If these are not possible, simply spreading the word would be great at this stage.

We will resume operations as soon as it is prudent to do so.
