In partnership with the Rotary Club of Nottingham, Castle Cavendish is funding the delivery of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Scheme in Hyson Green, Radford, Lenton and Dunkirk.
The Scheme is aimed at improving the level of child literacy and assist families in improving their learning experiences, and the ability to read English. The Scheme will ensure that children born in 2012 & 2013 will receive a free book through the post, every month until their 5th Birthday. It will also encourage parents to sit down with their children to help them read, and develop and support "reading groups" in the area.
Through working with the City Council and the Children’s Centres, the Scheme will provide the early intervention that will improve child literacy levels and improve education attainment as children enter formal education.
