Ways we are increasing the levels of literacy in North Lincolnshire and how to become a reading champion.
Increasing levels of literacy
Words Count aims to increase levels of literacy (reading and writing) for all our communities in North Lincolnshire. Latest research shows that children who can read well by the age of 11 discover a wider range of interests and knowledge, creativity and confidence.
Literacy influences everyone in all areas of life. Low literacy in the UK affects people’s chances of getting a job and looking after their health and wellbeing. For more information visit the Read On Get On website.
Volunteer to be a reading champion
Could you volunteer to help inspire a love of books in children across North Lincolnshire? The Reading Champion programme is a community partnership to support children’s reading skills.
If you can spare an hour a week to volunteer in a North Lincolnshire school, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us to register your interest.
