36% of children from disadvantaged backgrounds leave primary school in England each year unable to read to the expected standard. Innovations for Learning (IFL) is a charity focused on using technology to close this literacy gap through a unique online reading support programme called TutorMate.
About Innovations for Learning UK
Innovations for Learning (IfL) is a small but growing charity, which is working to ensure that every child in the UK acquires the literacy skills they need for their to thrive and fulfil their potential. Many children fall behind with reading simply because they lack the opportunity to practise. TutorMate addresses this problem by using a bespoke internet platform to pair volunteer tutors from corporate organisations with struggling pupils. TutorMate has been proven to improve the literacy outcomes, confidence and reading enjoyment of young children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our model is to partner with local and national businesses which recruit their own employees as volunteer readers and provide funding for the programme. TutorMate pairs struggling children (5- to 7-year-olds) with adult volunteers who use a bespoke internet platform and a voice connection to link – from their workplace or home – to a dedicated classroom laptop for 30 minutes a week, during the school day, over an entire academic year. Up to ten children in each Year 1 or Year 2 class participate, giving the programme a reach and scale that no school is able to achieve with parent or community volunteers.
We have set ourselves an ambitious target of supporting 4,000 children by 2024 and this role, with responsibility for stewarding and nurturing our existing corporate partnerships, will be crucial to ensuring that we have sufficient volunteers to achieve this target.

Lumos is an international children’s charity founded by J.K. Rowling to end the systematic and harmful practice of the institutionalisation of children. Our vision is a world in which all children have the opportunity to grow up and thrive in a safe and caring family or, where there is no alternative, in specialist placements that meet all their needs, respect their rights and ensure they can fulfil their potential.
For over 10 years Lumos has worked directly in a number of countries to safely transform systems of care and protection, helping to ensure children can grow up in loving families rather than harmful orphanages, and demonstrating that change is possible.
Despite the milestones achieved, millions of children continue to live in institutions globally and until more countries adopt quality system-wide reform at national levels, this grave problem will persist.
Right now, our team is working in Ukraine and neighbouring countries to provide support to children trapped in orphanages, to provide emergency food, hygiene and medical kits, to help keep some of the most vulnerable children safe.
