Book Buddies

Pawzitive

Pawzitive’s Book Buddies programme uses trained dogs to encourage children to read. The project will extend this programme to new schools in the Co Down area and also develop an early intervention pack for pupils from Primary 1 upwards. The pack can be used in school and at home with support from parents. The children become more self-confident, engage better in class and also read to their younger siblings.

Location: Crossgar

Funding requested: £50,000
