Education and Youth School Reading Recovery
Through the reading initiative, Mayor Rees intends to make sure that all children in Bristol learn to read well and love reading for the rest of their lives. Through partnerships with local organizations including the Ablaze charity, the Retired and Senior Volunteers Programme, and two universities, Bristol plans to develop a city-wide program of reading recovery in their primary schools.
"Over the past two years as a member of the Cities of Service family, and with the support of our US and UK partners, we have been able to test out different approaches to citizen action that support community cohesion and resilience while addressing city-wide priorities."Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol
