Making Literacy a Way of Life

In London, the statistics around literacy are alarming...

1 in 4 children are not ready to learn in Grade 1. CYN partners are working collectively to change this so that every Londoner can participate, thrive and reach their full potential.

Family Centres are a place where service providrs can support families in an integrated, holistic manner.
Creating a Family-Centred Service System

Family Centres

Family Centres are located in neighbourhoods, where families live, work, play, and go to school. They offer welcoming locations that are easy to access and staffed by knowledgeable professionals. Family Centres bring services to families in an integrated, accessible, and family-friendly way.

Family Centres are located in schools intentionally to provide families with a connection to the school environment long before children are old enough to attend.

Family Centres use a resident led neighbourhood engagement process to guide business and establish the unique strengths and assets of the neighbourhood.
