Read all About It! People with Passion Award!

We are delighted to share ‘Get Balsall Heath Reading’ has received the Community Award, for People with Passion 2020.

The lack of literacy impacts individuals and their families for generations. Adults with poor literacy skills struggle with employment, social inclusion, social mobility, self-esteem and struggle to support their children’s learning. And so, the long tail of disadvantage continues from one generation to another.
