National Literacy Trust

Description:

Literacy is one of the UK’s greatest challenges.  Last year, 1 in 4 children left primary school unable to read well.  As a result, their entire education and future opportunities will be limited: they are much more likely to leave school with poor qualifications and go on to experience unemployment, poverty, poor health and crime as adults.

The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK and giving disadvantaged children, young people and families the literacy skills to succeed.

They work in the UK’s poorest communities, campaign to make literacy a priority for politicians, businesses and parents, and support schools and early years settings.  All of their work is underpinned by pioneering research and analysis.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website.
