About National Literacy Trust
The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity that believes everyone in the UK should have the literacy skills they need. One person in six in the UK today has poor literacy. This means they can't succeed at school, are locked out of the job market, can't support their child's learning and struggle with daily tasks such as filling in forms or reading labels on food packaging. We are the only national charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK.

£15.00 enables us to give books to children in deprived areas of the UK ? often the first they will have ever owned. ?It feels better when it?s your own book. Because it?s yours, you don?t have to bring it back and you can read it over and over again.? Ben, aged 7 £25.00 helps funds family literacy packs for parents with children on neo-natal wards, helping them to bond with their babies through reading. ?I never thought to read to her in the unit until I was given a book and the benefits were explained to me by the nurse. I think she enjoys me reading ? I know I do.? Parent, James Cook University Hospital £50.00 helps trains a volunteer to work with parents of young children, helping to develop their children?s literacy and communication skills. ?Now I have a better understanding of how to support my child at home ? I can be like his teacher! I have learnt new skills [and] it has helped my child to understand new things.? Parent, Croydon £100.00 or more helps set up more National Literacy Trust Hubs to create long-term change in areas of the UK where low levels of literacy are entrenched and intergenerational. ?Our city has been able to raise awareness of the importance of literacy ? we have seen 50% of children making ?significant progress? as well as increased parental engagement and confidence.? Gillian Beasley, CEO Peterborough Council
