26TEN Team is working during Covid19 pandemic

The 26TEN team is still at work and here to answer questions about our services. You can contact us at email@26ten.tas.gov.au 

We've collated a list of ways we can keep building skills while keeping our distance - see it in our Resources section: 26ten.tas.gov.au/resources/Pages/KeepLearningandSocialDistancing.aspx

The 26TEN helpline is still operating

26TEN’s helpline, 1300 00 2610 is still being answered by our trained educators. We encourage you to take that first step.
Libraries Tasmania Literacy Service 
While all Libraries Tasmania sites are temporarily closed to the public until further notice, anyone interested in getting help with reading, writing or maths can still talk to a literacy coordinator. They can provide information and help people be prepared when normal services start again. Call 1300 00 2610 or email: email@26ten.tas.gov.au.

Current literacy students and volunteers

Literacy coordinators are contacting their students and making arrangements for this period. 
Libraries Tasmania has a link to online activities for adults wanting to build their literacy and numeracy skills (go to the bottom of the page): https://www.libraries.tas.gov.au/literacy/Pages/resources.aspx

26TEN Grants 

Current grants

As Tasmania's response to the COVID-19 virus unfolds, we will be as supportive and flexible as possible. We know that communities and organisations may have problems running activities and meeting deadlines. We hope you will be able to finish your project at some stage.
We would welcome hearing from you, especially if there is anything we can do to support you. Otherwise we will contact you later when, hopefully, the shape of the remainder of 2020 is clearer.

Current grant applications

The selection process for the 2019-20 grants is underway and we will complete it. Notice of the outcome may be delayed while the Tasmanian Government focuses on managing the impact of the COVID-19 virus. 
Please email grants@26ten.tas.gov.au or call Jen Dunbabin on 6165 6122 or Kate Boatwright  on 6165 5515.

26TEN Workshops 

All 26TEN workshops are currently suspended. You can continue to access plain English tools and the 26TEN Chat tools on our website.
We are looking at options for online/virtual delivery of workshops, so keep your eye on our workshop page for updates: https://26ten.tas.gov.au/Pages/Workshops.aspx

From the 26TEN Team

Remember we are here if you want to get in touch. We are sending our best wishes to our 26TEN community and look forward to continuing working with you to lift literacy and numeracy in Tasmania.
