New Local Authority Strategy for literacy

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

A ‘Right To Read’ campaign has just been launched which will radically enhance the role that local authorities play in promoting literacy in the community.

The strategy will ensure that literacy receives the priority and co-ordination it deserves at local authority level, especially through vital services such as libraries, sport and recreation and housing design.
The campaign will bring greater co-ordination, prominence and focus to this vital issue at community and national level.

In particular the ‘Right to Read’ Champion Award will clearly demonstrate the role and commitment that each local authority is dedicating to this vital issue.

Each local authority will now draft a Literacy Action Plan which will ensure that this vital issue receives the priority it deserves and that equal access to literacy services is available to citizens regardless of their location.
