Family Matters: The importance of family support for young people's reading

Nearly 21,000 8 to 16-year-olds from 128 schools in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales participated in our second annual literacy survey at the end of 2011. Using this data, this brief report explores who in the family encourages young people to read and who is seen reading. It also outlines how each of these relate to young people’s reading enjoyment, attitudes and behaviour as well as reading attainment.
