The Literacy and Learning Program is a free service giving individuals the opportunity to improve their literacy skills. The program is for men and women aged 18+ who are facing language and literacy barriers and have had, or are at risk of having involvement with the criminal justice system.
A lack of education is both a cause and a consequence of crime. Literacy and learning is one of the most successful ways an individual can gain self-esteem, confidence, knowledge and employment related skills; helping them move out of poverty and avoid becoming involved in criminal activity. When individuals are given literacy and learning opportunities it contributes to the overall health and safety of our community.
