Stoke Reads

The Stoke-on-Trent Literacy Hub is branded Stoke Reads. The campaign brings together partners across the city to promote reading and boost literacy levels.

Stoke Reads was launched in February 2017 by the National Literacy Trust and Stoke-on-Trent City Council. 

The campaign inspires the city to enjoy reading and helps parents to support their children’s literacy skills. Schools are delivering innovative literacy projects and businesses have the opportunity to play an important role in raising literacy levels.
