Help us to make a difference

In Ireland, one in six adults has problems reading. This has a devastating impact on individuals, families and communities.

With your help, we can change this.

There is strength in numbers and already our 2,500 members have helped us increase public understanding of literacy issues and to promote these as human rights.

All we ask of members is that they read our e-zine, share what they learn with friends and family and give us feedback on our work. With your support we believe everyone can have the literacy skills to succeed in life.

We have four types of membership with different benefits. Small organisation membership is for organisations that work at local level. Large organisation membership is for organisations that work at a county, regional or national level.

If you need an invoice before joining, you can choose the membership, fill in the form and at the payment section request an invoice (without paying). That way we have all your details and will get the invoice out to you as soon as possible.

Individuals can join for free, or for €25. Choose the one that suits you and help us to make a difference.
