READING & NUMERACY HUBS
Helping children and young people through reading and literacy development we are able to empower them to achieve integration in their community and fulfill their potential in life.
From our experience working with children and young people they have expressed needs very often beyond just learning, literacy and vocabulary. Very often the children and young people may be encountering difficulties, peer pressure, or mental health problems and having someone available to listen has given the young person the ability to share concerns and issues that have often been bottled up.
WITHIN THIS PROJECT WE HELP CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO MAY HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS OR WHO MAY BE ENCOUNTERING DIFFICULTIES IN LEARNING AND INTEGRATION

Many young people have suffered because they have not had the support they have needed and their special educational needs haven’t been identified allowing children and young people with hidden disabilities (ADHA, anxiety, dyslexia) to struggle socially and also through education if it goes unnoticed. With our literacy programme we identify these disabilities early and support the children and young people to get the necessary supports and assessments, so they have the appropriate accommodations and explicit instructions.
Many may have cultural barriers that hinder their growth, development and learning. Often, they are overlooked and even excluded and could be attending classes in school but are unable to grasp subjects, due to English being a second language within their home. Familial support is also limited, with families being unable to process the information given, to support their children and young people.
EXTRA SUPPORT & TIME
This project makes a difference by giving young people who need extra support, the time, and space they need from within the communities they live. They are able to become integrated more within the community and school setting, without feeling excluded and isolated. Their parents are also supported to help and support their children to become active members within society, therefore promoting togetherness and a sense of belonging.
