Our work in Stoke-on-Trent inspires the city to enjoy reading and helps parents to support their children’s literacy skills.

To get families in Stoke-on-Trent excited about reading and sharing stories, we run exciting community initiatives like Story Quest or Tales in the Park, our summer storytelling festivals.

We also work with schools to support the teaching of literacy, and partner with local businesses who support our mission to raise literacy levels in the city. Make sure you're following our Facebook page for regular updates on our work.
