In September 2014 Save the Children published a report highlighting the literacy issue in the UK which we have tackling and making a real difference in our Community for all these years.
How reading can help children escape poverty

Each year we leave thousands of young children, very many of them poor, behind in their reading. This means they’re less likely to experience the joy of reading, and they then struggle for the rest of their education and career.
This report sets out who we’re leaving behind and why.
Recognising the fundamental importance of reading well by age 11 and optimistic about our chances of turning this situation around, a wide coalition of organisations has come together to launch the Read On. Get On. campaign.
Together we will take action to work towards a historic goal for the UK: all children should be reading well by the age of 11 by 2025.
