Words for Life
Words for Life is a campaign from the National Literacy Trust which gets parents involved with their child's communication and literacy development and it gives them confidence to feel that they can make a positive difference. It is aimed at parents of children aged from birth to eleven.
This programme connects community volunteers with local families with children that would benefit from advice about supporting their children's early literacy development. Literacy Champions support parents over a course of five weeks, encouraging them to share books with their children and introducing them to fun learning activities they can take part in with their child.
