One in six adults struggles with reading. Research shows that when people read for pleasure they benefit from far greater opportunities in everyday life, education and employment.
The Norfolk Reading Pathway is a free programme which is available across Norfolk and is open to any adult who would like support to become a more confident reader.
We match learners with one of our volunteer coaches and they work through the ‘Yes we can read' handbook together.
Coaching sessions are usually weekly for up to an hour. COVID-19 restrictions mean sessions can no longer take place in our libraries, so coaching is currently offered via telephone, Zoom or WhatsApp.
If you know someone who needs support or would just like to find out more, contact your local library or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
