Get Suffolk Reading is a National Literacy Trust initiative working with schools, community organisations and families to foster a love of reading across the county.
Funded by Suffolk County Council, Get Suffolk Reading works in three target areas to engage parents and guardians to support literacy from birth, with reading shown to improve wellbeing and aspiration in young people.
The Lowestoft project was launched in April 2022, following launches in both Haverhill and Stowmarket.
Volunteers – called Literacy Champions – are focused in each of these areas, and families across Suffolk can get involved in various community activities too.
If you live in Lowestoft and would like to become a Literacy Champion get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow @GetSuffolkReading on Facebook to stay updated on what’s going on.
