Funding

The First Minister's Reading Challenge has a fund available to support primary and secondary schools, public libraries and community groups to develop a love of reading in their setting.

The Workshops Fund will offer funding of £500 to invite an author, illustrator, storyteller or poet to work with children and young people in your setting and to buy books or other resources to make the most of the visit. All projects that help children and young people to engage with reading for pleasure, or encourage a love of reading, will be considered.

Applications for the Workshops Fund close on Thursday 17 November 2022. All registered groups can apply for the fund via their dashboard.

If you have any questions about applying, please get in touch at readingchallenge@scottishbooktrust.com.
