Norfolk Libraries helping adults who struggle with reading

Do you know someone who lacks the confidence in reading?

Norfolk Council's reading pathway could help them with one to one support.

One in six adults struggles with reading but this programme is free and runs in all Norfolk Libraries.

It's open to any adult who would like support to become a more confident reader. 

 

Research shows that there are lots of benefits to reading for pleasure. 

A learner would be matched with a Reading Pathway Volunteer and they'd then work through the 'Yes we can read' handbook.

You can either contact your local library or email nrp@norfolk.gov.uk if you or someone you know would like help or just want to find out more.
