Low literacy undermines our economic competitiveness and sustainability, and creates obstacles to a fairer society. Businesses have the resources and reach to make a real impact.

Opportunities for partnership

By working in partnership with us, you can make a real difference to raising literacy levels.

We recognise that companies and their employees want to see where their support goes, and so we make every effort to provide line of sight for all your support – whether it’s fundraising, employee time or other partnership activity. We can also provide bespoke opportunities for you to meet your CSR and business objectives. To contact us about partnerships email

  • Engaging your employees

    There is so much you can do within your organisation. Workplace giving, skills-based volunteering opportunities for school programmes, team building and challenge events, providing support for parents on how to support their children’s literacy skills, and much more.

  • Taking action in your local community

    Support local services near your office by providing funds, volunteering time or gifts to directly benefit people in your local community. You could also sponsor a literacy programme to boost literacy levels in disadvantaged communities.

  • Working with suppliers, customers and peers

    Fundraising events that include your suppliers and clients can be a great way to showcase your CSR efforts. Or how about working with us to create a product or service for your business that has mutual benefits?

  • Supporting the national literacy campaign

    Benefit from brand alignment by partnering with us on a campaign or commission some new research to enhance the evidence base.
