Yorkshire Coast

Summer Program-9

Our work along the Yorkshire Coast brings people across Whitby, Scarborough and Filey together to champion literacy. An area-wide campaign inspires parents to share stories with their children every day, and community Literacy Champions promote the importance of reading, writing and talking.

Literacy Champions are local volunteers who want to make a difference in their area. The initiative tackles the North Yorkshire Coast’s literacy issues at a community level, empowering local people to improve the literacy of those around them.

Our Stories is supported by the North Yorkshire Coast Opportunity Area.
