Promoting reading in prisons

We’ve been working with The Reading Agency for three years on a pilot scheme designed to encourage reading among non-English speakers in the prison system.

The pilot, funded by The Bell Foundation, built on The Reading Agency’s established Reading Ahead scheme which seeks to improve people’s reading confidence and reading skills through the encouragement of reading for pleasure.

On Friday, Matthew presented the findings of our evaluation to an audience of prison educators, librarians and others involved in the criminal justice system at The Reading Agency’s offices in London.
