About 26TEN

Let's Work Together

We are here to help you

26TEN is a network of organisations and individuals working together to improve adult literacy and numeracy in Tasmania. Better literacy and numeracy means a better Tasmania for all.

26TEN has an ambitious ten-year strategy to improve adult literacy and numeracy in Tasmania. We want a state where:

Everyone knows about adult literacy and numeracy

Everyone is supported to improve their skills and to help others

Everyone communicates clearly

26TEN includes:

A members program to help build the network and to extend the range of programs, services and support available to Tasmanians.

The 26TEN website to inform Tasmanians about programs and services and to give the network a home.

The 1300 00 2610 service to guide and refer Tasmanians seeking help.

A campaign to inform the community of the benefits of adult literacy skills and that the 26TEN network is ready and available to help.
