So we know we've talked A LOT about our Book Club recently, but you might be wondering about our rationale behind it and also why there's a cost involved. 🧐

Often, poor literacy is a major barrier to someone gaining the support they need and it can even be a contributing factor to someone becoming homeless in the first place due to challenges in securing work. 😟

🟠 £4.99 is all we need to buy a new book to put in our reading library for our clients. 📖

🟠 £10.99 can buy educational books to help enhance someone's literacy skills, which is crucial to them gaining independence. 🙋‍♂️

For a monthly donation of either £4.99 or £10.99, you'll be giving yourself a chance to join a community of book lovers who are also passionate about improving literacy rates among adults who are experiencing homelessness 🤝

Please do tell your friends, family and colleagues and we can make a real difference to people's literacy skills in #oxfordshire! #literacyskills #literacymatters #improvingliteracyrates #homelessness #homelessliteracy
