Please note, in order to make best use of our funding, we are only able to offer a very limited number of in-house training sessions for specific groups of professionals, in certain geographical locations.

"Transforming the health and wellbeing of Scots is the single most important thing we can do and at the heart of that process is doing things for children, getting children off to the best possible start in life. The Bookbug programme is a critical part of it. Getting children to read and getting parents reading to children and sharing that experience will have a very significant impact on their future health and wellbeing."

Sir Harry Burns, Professor of Global Public Health, Strathclyde University
