Adult Literacy for Life in Donegal

Adult Literacy for Life is a whole-of-society strategy. It aims to ensure that everyone has the literacy, numeracy and digital literacy to participate in society and succeed in life. Read the Adult Literacy for Life strategy.

Hello, my name is Adele McElhinney

I am the Regional Literacy Coordinator with Donegal Education and Training Board. I am passionate about reducing the number of adults across Donegal with unmet literacy needs. Through the action plan outlined by Donegal's Regional Adult Literacy Coalition, I believe we can all work together to make this happen. We are breaking down barriers and helping adults to build their literacy skills so they can become socially independent and active. Everyone can help. Why not play your part and contact me about Literacy Awareness Training or volunteering to help someone.
