About the Trust

The Siobhan Dowd Trust works to give young people the opportunity to read and enjoy literature. It is the money earned through royalties and foreign sales of Siobhan’s books that allows the trust to support deserving projects.

The Siobhan Dowd Trust exists to fund any person or groups that:

Take stories to children and young people without stories;

Bring the joy of reading and books to children and young people deprived of access to books and of the opportunity to read;

Fund and support disadvantaged young readers where there is no funding or support. In accordance with Siobhan’s wishes, our funding process is very open, flexible, and we hope, simple.

@LiteracyLarbey That’s great, thank YOU! Guggenheim is by the lovely Robin Stephens, using Siobhan’s characters. We’re a Trust set up by Siobhan before she died - we use her book’s proceeds to find reading for pleasure projects so v grateful for people recommending her work.
