Read Easy Barnstaple is delighted to share the story of Sidney, their 100th reader, now improving his reading skills with Richard, who is coaching for the first time too! They are both very excited to be setting off on this learning journey together.
The pair meet weekly at PLUSS offices, an award-winning social enterprise that supports people with disabilities and disadvantages to move towards and into work. Sidney is receiving help here to find suitable work for himself, as he is very keen to improve his chances of getting work. He has always been a cleaner, but as he cannot read all the labels on cleaning fluid bottles, he is worried that he will get something wrong and use the wrong product for the wrong job, or even do something dangerous.
Sidney has agreed that he is happy to share his journey with everyone, so we will be posting news on Facebook about his progress at regular intervals.
