A journey into the wonderful world of words

This year, we’re using the magic of storytelling to ignite a love of reading in the younger generation. We ran a workshop with the Year 5 class at Parish CE Primary School to create a festive story for everyone to enjoy.

To boost literacy levels, now and in the future

With 7.1 million adults having a reading age at, or below, the level of a 9-year-old1, and 43% of adults not understanding written healthcare information1 – we want to do more. Our purpose is to make it marvellously easy for everyone to say ‘I get it!’, whenever or whatever they are reading.

We believe that a passion for books, reading and storytelling can be transformative for young minds developing their literacy skills.

Better adult literacy means better health literacy, which ultimately means happier, healthier lives.
