Our Story

lucy_vera readingRaising Literacy Australia (RLA) is a not-for-profit organisation committed to enriching Australian lives through literacy.

Through universal and targeted programs, we support families to read, talk, play and sing with their children from birth; providing books and resources to nurture young children’s development and information for parents to encourage effective engagement in their child’s early learning.

By providing families with access to information and resources right from the start, we are giving their children the best possible chance to succeed and supporting their pathway to social inclusion, improved health, education and employment outcomes and the ability to realise their full potential.

Investing in the early years has a profound impact on a child’s future, and through our programs we strive to use the power of stories and reading to create a more literate, creative and capable society.
