Paired Up Reading partners Primary School children with older people in Salford to support friendship, literacy and connection in our community. Children meet with their reading partner once a week, going in a supervised group from school, to have 1:1 friendship and support with their reading. Free and Fun books are provided.

This project has been supported by Age UK and Nandos Salford to expand to three Primary schools in 2019.
