Read Easy Torbay
Helping adults learn to read isn’t just about enabling them to enjoy a good book. It is so much more.
By improving their literacy, Read Easy also helps our readers to improve their employment opportunities as well as their ability to support their families, allowing some to take their first steps out of poverty.
By enabling parents (and grandparents) to read to their children and support their education, it can often help break the inter-generational cycle of literacy difficulties.
Everyday tasks such as paying household bills, using a cash point machine, reading the instructions on a medicine bottle and doing the weekly shop are no longer overwhelmingly challenging.
Learning to read also hugely increases a person’s confidence and can enable them to take a much more active part in their communities and society as a whole.
