Literacy Trust

Literacy Trust
We are an independent charity dedicated to giving disadvantaged children the literacy skills they need to succeed.
We work to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the UK's poorest communities, where one in three people have literacy problems.
Because low literacy is intergenerational, we focus our work on families, young people and children.

Last year:

  • We worked with 43,913 pupils, encouraging them to read and write for pleasure and purpose
  • We gifted 239,894 brand new books through our programmes, community work and competitions
  • We gave 2,087 teachers engaging literacy resources and tools through our membership
