Speaker: Trevor Wakefield.
Subject: Guernsey Adult Literacy Project.


Trevor Wakefield, Chair of the Guernsey Arts Commission and former Principal at Guernsey College of FE, is a Director of the Guernsey Adult Literary Project.

The Guernsey Adult Literacy Project is a charity which provide adults in Guernsey with opportunities to develop their literacy skills, including financial literacy.

In the UK there have been several research projects and reports which have highlighted the issues of poor literacy skills in the adult working population.

Although similar research has not been carried out in Guernsey, concerns around poor basic skills have been recognised as an important issue by various States departments and employers.

The Guernsey Adult Literacy Project (GALP), a charitable trust, was established in 2006 to help tackle the problem of adult literacy.

GALP works in partnership with other organisations including the Social Security Department, the Prison and the Probation Service. The charity also works with employers, providing literacy training in the workplace.

GALP does not charge fees to its clients (most of them are not in a position to be able to pay fees). Consequently the charity welcomes donations and sponsorships as well as arranging various fund-raising activities.
