Adult Literacy for Life in Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim

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 Thomas Howley

The Adult Literacy for Life (ALL) strategy provides a distinctive regional platform for local partners in Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim to unite and tackle the unaddressed literacy needs among adults in our communities.

It serves as an opportunity for local collaborators to pinpoint an existing literacy gap and collectively instigate positive transformations. This allows adults to engage more actively in society.

Witnessing the favorable impact of literacy-focused endeavors in our communities is truly inspiring. I wholeheartedly urge community partners to work closely with the ALL team and support the ALL strategy in your area. This will contribute to fostering beneficial literacy outcomes for the adults residing in our communities.

Meet your Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim Literacy Coalition
