In our first national literacy survey, we learned that reading and writing difficulties are more common than we might think. This has a massive impact on people’s lives and how they feel about themselves.
With our Words can’t hold us back campaign we’re bringing this issue to light, so we can remove the stigma and help to break the cycle.
Early intervention, along with making sure that people know where and how to get the help they need is key.
We’ve put together some downloadable guides to support literacy and help young people become better readers.
Meet our campaign ambassadors
There are many reasons why people struggle to read, write and communicate.
We know that the sooner young people get the help they need the better the outcome will be. To help us spread the word we’re partnering with some literacy ambassadors.
