Reading Force is a fun shared reading and scrapbooking initiative that helps keep military families close and connected during deployments and at home.

We give free books and special scrapbooks to Forces children and encourage families to chat about them, building bridges across distance and keeping Forces families communicating well and on the same page.

Reading Force is free for ALL serving, reservist and veteran British military families - Army, RAF, Navy & Marines - based in the UK and overseas

Your donation is invaluable and will be used to provide books and scrapbooks. Every pound helps us to reach more families and your support will benefit military families in many different ways.

Why donate to Reading Force? 

“Dad’s away from home and I miss him,
but I love how we can still share stories and books.” 

Forces families are often highly mobile and children can experience the disruption of multiple changes of home and school. Long periods of separation when a parent is deployed can cause stress and worry. 

Chatting about books and stories in emails and over Skype or FaceTime connects families who are separated, and provides bonding time for Forces families together at home.  This supports emotional wellbeing, builds resilience, and creates positive shared memories.

Please help us to support our military families and donate to Reading Force today
