2.4 million adults in England alone cannot read at all or can barely read. Our vision is for all adults in the UK to have the literacy skills they need to fulfil their potential and live life to the full.
We are excited to share that our Founder and CEO, Ginny Williams-Ellis has won a World Literacy Award in the category ‘Significant Contribution to Literacy by an Individual'. While working as a literacy tutor in three Dorset prisons, Ginny became aware of the number of adults who struggle with even the most basic level of reading. She founded Read Easy in 2010 to provide free, flexible, friendly and confidential reading coaching to any adult who struggles to read.
