In March 2013, the National Literacy Trust convened the first National Literacy Forum. It is attended by representatives from the voluntary and community sector, as well as from government, and meets twice each year to discuss policy themes pertinent to addressing low literacy.
The forum's aims are to:
Inform the development of national policy and develop consensus around literacy issues
Reflect on service development and create opportunities for collaborative working
Influence policy makers using collective expertise
