Vision for Literacy Business Pledge 2016

The Vision for Literacy Business Pledge is an exciting project that we are leading, with the support of KPMG, through the National Literacy Forum to galvanise the business community behind the literacy challenge. It builds on the Vision for Literacy, a policy document released in October 2014 with cross-party commitment to tackle the UK’s literacy crisis.

Businesses from a range of sectors, and of various sizes, have signed up to the pledge to highlight their commitment to tackling the literacy challenge through practical action that will deliver tangible benefits to the local community, and society as a whole. Business signatories recognise that low literacy undermines the UK’s economic competitiveness and sustainability and creates obstacles to a fairer society. They also recognise that they are part of the solution to this problem.
