Birmingham Stories

Birmingham hub banner school

Birmingham Stories is the campaign to raise literacy levels and change the life stories of young people and adults across the city.

Birmingham Stories is run in partnership with the University of Birmingham, and is our first Literacy Hub to be founded with a university. Research is therefore at the core of our work.

We are working with local schools, young people, businesses and cultural organisations on a series of engaging activities to spread awareness of the importance of storytelling and literacy at every stage of life.
