Human Rights - Wordworks is transforming lives through literacy

Shelley O'Carroll - Director and Early Literacy Programme Coordinator of Wordworks joined us on the line to talk about the organisation and their home-school partnership programme. Wordworks aims to support and improve the literacy and language development of children from disadvantaged communities through targeted early intervention and the delivery of proven programmes and resources. They believe that by working with parents, teachers, volunteers and the wider community, together we can help all our children realise their full potential. Their 3 main areas of work include supporting early literacy and language development, empowering parents to support learning in the home and strengthening literacy and language teaching in Grade R. The Home-School Partnership Programme supports parents with skills, knowledge, fun ideas and resources for building their young children’s learning and language skills at home.
