We offer a range of free workshops to help raise awareness of literacy and numeracy, and to help build communication skills.
Adults who have improved their reading, writing and maths skills find it changes their lives in so many ways, like being able to read to their children, get a driver licence or get work. That's what we're celebrating this October in 26TEN Week.
