Like every person and every organisation, we’re changing how we do things in response to the Covid-19 virus.
Shannon Trust is a national charity supporting thousands of prisoners a year to transform their lives by unlocking the power of reading. 50% of people that end up in prison either can't read or struggle to: Their life chances are limited from the word go. Shannon Trust inspires and trains prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can’t, so they're better set up for a positive future.
Many of us take the ability to read for granted. But thousands of people can’t read notes from loved ones, menus or job ads. Our Turning Pages programme enables them to learn.
We rapidly developed our services and resources in response to Covid 19, so that people could continue their learning journey despite the challenging circumstances.
