UK Literacy Working Group


The Literacy Working Group is a group of UK-based, non-governmental organisations and expert individuals from the field of adult literacy. 


LWG is a member of the UK Global Campaign for Education policy group. Our focus is:

  • advocating to the UK Government, UNESCO and other international agencies on the importance of adult literacy in international development and for the achievement of the MDG and EFA goals
  • working in solidarity with colleagues internationally who support adult literacy as a key part of development

We have written papers, organised events, run workshops, contributed to the GMRs, met with ministers and officials and collaborated with a variety of groups and networks.
