Sharing stories: Connecting families and communities with early literacy research

2020-2021

In collaboration with Glasgow Life, the Sharing Stories project aims to connect families and communities in Glasgow with research on early language development.  Working closely with family support workers and families in Glasgow’s literacy hotspots, we will host accessible, fun and creative workshops designed to engage families in early language research and promote community involvement.  During these workshops, we will also co-develop resources with, and for, parents with young children which reflect their interests and needs.   Following the project, we aim to share good practice and learning across all 32 local authorities in Scotland through the Libraries Early Years Strategy Group.

This project is funded by Carnegie UK, Wellcome and the Wolfson Foundation, though their Engaging Libraries programme. If you would like further information about this project, or would like to get involved, please contact Dr Lynne Duncan: l.g.duncan@dundee.ac.uk
