We are pleased to tell you about a local projects fund for Reading Hack. This fund is to support Reading Hackers who want to run local projects which inspire their peers to take part in reading and writing activities in their communities. This might include workshops or artist events but we are also open to your ideas!

About the Reading Hack projects fund

  • We will support ideas with financial assistance of between £50-£250
  • Applications need to come from young people taking part in Reading Hack with the endorsement of a librarian or school teacher (to whom the money will be sent).
  • Young people can apply anytime. We will review applications and select ideas on a monthly basis.
  • From time to time, we might invite applications relating to a particular theme or campaign e.g. reading and health, or World Book Night.
  • There is no limit to the number of times you can apply, however we suggest putting in no more than one application every three months
  • The activity will need to be promoted and evidenced on the Reading Hack website


The application form is here

We will select the best ideas on a monthly basis. The proposed idea should be for an activity related to reading and writing.

NB. Currently this opportunity is open to schools and libraries who are part of the Reading Hack learning group (former pilot groups). In September 2016, the opportunity will also be made available to library authorities and schools who sign up to join the Reading Hack network. Ask your library or school for details.
