Adult Literacy Support in Bristol from Read Easy

I’m getting in touch on behalf of Read Easy Bristol. We help adults in the community learn to read, and feel that care workers could be valuable contacts in spotting those who may need help and referring them to us. We are simply trying to get this message out to care workers across Bristol, perhaps you can help us with this?

It is very common for those who struggle with reading to keep their difficulties to themselves, and they are often in no practical position to get help, so it really is down to individuals and organisations who come into contact with the community to spot those who need help and gently refer them to us. Adult illiteracy is sadly an increasing problem across the country and has a detrimental effect on people’s wellbeing and life opportunities, at Read Easy Bristol we pair up those who struggle with coaches to help them learn and improve, it’s a completely free, volunteer-run service.

Care workers often come into contact with their client’s families and wider support groups in a confidential setting, providing a good opportunity to spot those who may need help and gently refer them to us.

Is this something which you feel you could help us with? If so, we would greatly appreciate it if you could simply pass this information and awareness on to any of your colleagues, associates or friends who may come into contact with those who struggle with reading and would appreciate help. All referrers need to do is contact me, my details are below.

I’d be happy to answer any questions, send more info, come and drop off leaflets etc, please contact Miles Lynch t: 07907491414 / e: bristolnetworker@readeasy.org.uk.
