Peeple

We support parents and children to learn together. Our aim is to support all parents/carers to create the best start for their children by making the most of everyday learning opportunities - because what happens at home helps each child to reach their full potential.

Peep Imagination Library Books Appeal:  Having books at home makes a real difference to babies' and children's love of stories and books. It also gives them a flying start in learning to talk and read. However, not all families can afford to buy books and not all parents are confident to share books with their children. 

In partnership with Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, we send a free book each month to 554 children aged 0-4 who live in the Leys in south Oxford. By March 2020, we hope to reach 600 children including those at our new Little Peeple Nursery in Littlemore. We have delivered a total of 13,396 books since 2014. We also provide Imagination Library book-sharing sessions in our Pre-school in The Leys to children and their parents.

A local health visitor told us: 'I have received a lot of positive comments about how parents really value this project. Some have said they wouldn't have thought of reading to their babies.' 

We urgently need funds to enable us to continue this work - our target is to raise £33,180 to run this valuable project until the end of March 2020.

£3 per month will enable us to send a free book to a child each month for a year. £180 will fund an entire library for a family.
