We target our work in the communities that need help most, working with local partners to deliver place-based solutions. National Literacy Trust Hubs create long-term change in communities where low levels of literacy are entrenched, intergenerational and seriously impacting on people’s lives.
Parents and the home learning environment have the greatest effect on how a child develops language and literacy skills. Our site Words for Life gives developmental milestones, tips, fun resources and advice to help parents support their children’s literacy development.
We rely on the generous support of individuals, communities and businesses to continue our vital work to transform lives through literacy.
