About our branches

Our branches aim to raise awareness and understanding of dyslexia by holding meetings which are open to the public.  Anyone with an interest in dyslexia is very welcome to attend – people with dyslexia, parents, professionals and more.  

Often our branches will have speakers on a range of topics related to dyslexia.  They will usually also have information for you to take away and the chance to chat with one of our friendly branch volunteers, all of whom have a connection with or understanding of dyslexia. Keep up to date with all our branch activities on our Events page.

Why do people get involved in our branches?

Branch volunteers needed! 

Many of our branches are looking for more volunteers – they rely on volunteers to help organise the huge range of events that they provide every year. Could you spare a couple of hours a month to help? You don’t need to be an expert, you just need to be willing to help out in any way you can. Find out more about what's involved here.  

Find out more about what's involved about setting up and running a branch in your area in our Branch Handbook
