HELPING PEOPLE TO READ AND WRITE

Our adult literacy group, Ruskin Readers, is an informal club where people can come and learn to read and write with a tutor on a 1:1 basis. For an adult, joining the club to seek help in reading and writing can be a big decision.

We are raising money to make a film about the group, so new learners and tutors can find out more about what we do, and feel comfortable joining. If you would like to support us in this please go to our Support Us page on our website (www.bellhouse.co.uk) or to find out more about Ruskin Readers please visit www.bellhouse.co.uk/ruskin-readers
