One in 5 adults in Scotland struggle to perform the day to day tasks involving literacy and numeracy which most of us take for granted. In the Falkirk Council area, between 18,000 and 20,000 adults have difficulty with spelling, form filling, reading and counting.
The Adult Literacies Partnership have worked with more than 1000 learners in developing their skills, abilities and confidence as well as their job prospects, supporting their children's learning and opening up new opportunities in their personal, family, community and working life.
Free help is available in a small group setting at a variety of locations across Falkirk Council and learning is tailored to personal needs. Further information can be obtained by calling Tel: 01324 503676.
