Read Write Now student to feature on SBS Insight program

As you may know, it is rare for adult literacy to be in the spotlight as the shame and stigma of poor literacy result in it being covered up.

The TV program Insight, hosted by Jennie Brockie focused on this issue in the program titled Reading Between the Lines, and the really exciting news was that a Read Write Now student was a guest on the program. More information here.

RWN Round Up

What's happening?

For all the latest news, articles and photos from around WA.

videostillRead Write Now is a volunteer group that was set up in Western Australia in 1977. Volunteer tutors provide free one-to-one assistance to adults wanting to improve their reading, writing, spelling, maths and/or IT skills.


Did you know that almost half of the Australian population struggles with everyday practical literacy skills? That's why newspapers are written for the reading level of 10-11 year olds.
