Looked-after Children and Literacy 2012

Added 01 Jan 2012 | Updated 04 Oct 17

The National Literacy Trust’s Young Readers Programme has always worked successfully with schools and libraries in areas of deprivation for over 15 years. We ran some pilot work with looked-after children both in residential and foster care. 

As part of this work we undertook some research to assess the current situation regarding looked-after children and literacy, what interventions were already out there and what we could learn from previous projects. We hope this information will be useful for other projects and interventions working to improve literacy and reading for pleasure with this group.
