Looked-after children and literacy: a brief review

The Literacy Trust has "recently started some pilot work with looked-after children both in residential and foster care. As part of this work we undertook some desk-based research to assess the current situation as to looked-after children and literacy, what interventions were already out there and what we could learn from previous projects. We hope this information will be useful for other projects and interventions working to improve literacy and reading for pleasure with this group."
