About this event

The practical and emotional outcomes of poor literacy can create barriers for individuals trying to move out of homelessness. How can frontline workers identify the reading and writing difficulties experienced by their clients, and what steps can they take to support them? In this seminar, Julia Olisa will describe the nature of difficulties, and suggest tips and tools for key working.
