We remove barriers to people with unmet literacy needs
In Ireland, more than 500,000 people struggle with reading and understanding information, or doing simple math. This means they may be unable to fill in a form, vote, read instructions on medicines, add up a bill, help kids with homework or search the web for information.
We provide professional services to help organisations to be more accessible to people with unmet literacy, numeracy or digital literacy needs. There are benefits and cost savings of doing this.
