1st February is World Read Aloud Day www.litworld.org/wrad/

The day is a reminder that reading aloud to children every day puts them almost a year ahead of children for whom this is not their experience.

It is also a reminder that there are 750 million adults around the world , two thirds of whom are women,  without basic skills in reading and writing.

Our RSVP School volunteers help children acquire literacy as a basic human right.

Stroke strikes every five minutes in the UK. That's why #NHSLongTermPlan focuses on stroke as a clinical priority. Read more about our commitments to improving prevention and treatment:
