Local charity Dyslexia Sparks to open new centre

Hull and East Yorkshire’s only registered charity for dyslexia, Dyslexia Sparks, will be opening a new centre in the region in the New Year.

Specialist tuition and diagnostic dyslexia assessments will be available at local charity Dyslexia Sparks’ new centre at Dunston House, Livingstone Road, Hessle from 3rd January 2023

Currently located at two sites – Centre 88 in Hull and Home Farm Offices in Melton – the charity is moving to a larger, single-site centre at Dunston House in Hessle. From Tuesday 3 January 2023, diagnostic dyslexia assessments and specialist tuition services will be available at the charity’s new Hessle centre.

The move will enable the charity to respond to the challenge of rising costs while also delivering an enhanced experience for clients.

Jane Craig, Dyslexia Sparks’ Founding Director, explains: “It’s a fond farewell to our previous centres – they hold lots of special memories for us as we’ve supported so many dyslexic individuals to fulfil their potential at these sites over many years. But we know that this move comes as an important, positive step forwards for Dyslexia Sparks.

“The new centre is more suitable for supporting the needs of our beneficiaries and our team of specialists are very much looking forward to the greater collaboration and sharing of information and resources that working in the same space brings.

“We’re also looking forward to an enhanced sense of community for all our Sparks – which is something we know is very important for our clients, especially the children we support. We’re very excited to be entering a whole new chapter of the Dyslexia Sparks journey and can’t wait to welcome clients to our new home!”

Hull and East Yorkshire’s only registered charity for dyslexia, Dyslexia Sparks, supports dyslexic individuals of all ages to reach their full potential through specialist tuition and diagnostic assessments and was established in 2016. The charity delivers training to schools and organisations, helping them to spot the signs of dyslexia and how to support dyslexic individuals within a mainstream classroom environment. It also provides free advice, support and guidance to dyslexic individuals and their families and promotes awareness and understanding of dyslexia.

As a registered charity, Dyslexia Sparks can provide financial support to eligible households in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire to help with the cost of specialist tuition and diagnostic dyslexia assessments.
