Doorstep Library was established in 2010, with the aim of instilling a love of reading for pleasure among disadvantaged children. Our projects are different to other literacy programs because we are home-based, meaning we are able to establish relationships with those families who may face barriers to reading with their children or taking them outside of the home to access services. These are often families that are most in need or socially isolated. With our long-term support not only do we spark the joy of reading for both children and their parents, but families are able to build up their self-confidence and trust in others in the community, towards professionals and the world of education.
