Looked-After Children and Literacy: A Brief Review
Poulton, Lizzie
National Literacy Trust
The National Literacy Trust's Young Readers Programme has always worked successfully with schools and libraries in areas of deprivation for over 15 years. The Trust staff have recently started some pilot work with looked-after children both in residential and foster care. As part of this work they undertook some desk-based research to assess the current situation as to looked-after children and literacy, what interventions were already out there and what they could learn from previous projects. The National Literacy Trust is seeking to adapt the programme for residential units and adapt the model for families to best meet the needs of looked-after children in foster care and carers. This programme already encourages links with the local library.
