Our network 

Membership is invaluable for a constant source of ideas and good practice, keeping up to date with news and research and generally staying motivated. I couldn't do my job half as well without the National Literacy Trust!

Schools - the heart of the community

HeartCelebrating schools who are working “inside out and outside in”, using literacy to reach out to parents and other schools as well as drawing on local business, artists, authors, museums and galleries to support children's literacy.
