National Literacy Trust

The National Literacy Trust is an independent charity working with schools and communities to give disadvantaged children the literacy skills to succeed in life. Communitas was hired to support the National Literacy Trust with the media launch of their Commission into Youth Literacy and Employability.

Co-ordinated by the charity and led by the All-Party Parliamentary Literacy Group, the final report calls for a partnership between businesses and schools to improve students’ future employment prospects.

Communitas was also on hand to advise alternative ways to engage with parliamentary debates about the topic. 

The report was met with a positive response from journalists and gained great traction amongst MPs as well as the National Literacy Trust’s stakeholders.

The team at Communitas provided strategic thinking and tenacity to this campaign. They worked tirelessly to promote our story within the national and trade press, offering solutions to any hurdles that arose and giving honest advice. They secured great results spanning a range of media.
