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. Individuals can join for free, or for €25. 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.

Choose the one that suits you and help us to make a difference.

If you need an invoice before joining, just choose ‘invoice’ when you are applying below at the payment stage, and we will send you one.
