Lost Words, Lost Futures fundraising appeal
Help children affected by COVID-19 to catch up after months of lost learning.
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.
We are launching a new initiative called Connecting Stories across our 14 Hub areas thanks to funding from Arts Council England
Today, we published a comprehensive review of literature looking at the impact of COVID-19 on families’ wellbeing and how this impacts the home learning environment.
Our Chief Executive Jonathan Douglas CBE gave evidence to the Education Select Committee as part of their inquiry into the educational underachievement of pupils from disadvantaged white backgrounds
