Bradford Stories

Bradford stories hub banner

Since 2014, we have been fighting illiteracy 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.

We recently launched the Bradford Stories Festival, which celebrates the people, places and stories at the heart of Bradford’s communities.
