Our Stories - Bradford

Since 2014, we have been supporting literacy in Bradford through unique, community-driven projects. We have worked with over 30,000 children, families and teachers, and have given out over 50,000 books to children – many of whom did not own a single book.

We’ve focused our work on encouraging writing through innovative poetry projects, improving school readiness by working with dads, and recruiting local community volunteers.

Goldsmiths 500 Writers Challenge

We're seeking Bradford primary schools to take part in our exciting project starting in Autumn 2024 that focuses on the development of writing as pupils move from Year 2 through to Year 4.
