NATIONAL LITERACY TRUST
The National Literacy Trust are dedicated to raising literacy levels across the UK.
They work to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the UK's most disadvantaged communities, where one in three people have low levels of literacy.
"Their research shows that during the initial school closures in 2020, 3 in 5 children and young people said that reading made them feel better. 3 in 10 said that reading helped them when they feel sad because they cannot see their family and friends."
