At Stephens & George Centenary Charitable Trust our aim is simple; to raise literacy standards. To achieve this we will provide training, academic support, bursary awards and internships in the field of literacy, publishing and printing.

We are aiming for a future in which:

Individuals who have traditionally not been
a part of the mainstream writing world are actively engaged in literature

Where fewer young people fail their educational key stage standards in English.

The community is actively engaged via innovative volunteering programmes to enhance and raise literacy levels.

We know that communities which face literacy problems contain people that
create solutions.

Aim 1
To provide tailored Reading Support Volunteer programmes within the community to raise literacy standards.

Aim 2
To improve equality of access to literature.

Aim 3
To deliver unique literature support programmes.

To research effectively in order to improve resources and generate a positive outcome with monitorable results.
