National Literacy Trust

National Literacy Trust

The National Literacy Trust is a national charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK. We run projects in the UK's most disadvantaged communities, support schools, and campaign to make literacy a priority for politicians and parents. The National Literacy Trust believes that taking part in writing challenges and awards can have a lasting impact on pupils' attitudes, motivation and enjoyment, which in turn can help to boost attainment and support them to reach their full potential. Schools can find out more about the charity's programmes, training and resources in our Support for Schools guide.
