Get Blackpool Reading


Get Blackpool Reading is a community-driven campaign led by the National Literacy Trust in partnership with Blackpool Council and the Blackpool Opportunity Area.

Get Blackpool Reading works with local partners, schools and businesses to promote reading for pleasure among children and families. We help them prioritise literacy in their lives and give them the skills they need to succeed.

We also help parents in Blackpool to become more confident in supporting their children's literacy, through a Literacy Champions project and school gates volunteering.
