Craigmillar Literacy Trust is a well-established charity working in Edinburgh’s Craigmillar community to advance education, lifelong learning and life chances for all. Our current work has a strong focus on delivering literacy, book and reading programmes with children and young people and families through the Craigmillar Books for Babies project, an annual Craigmillar Book Festival, creative residencies and book gifting schemes.

With retirals this year, we are seeking to appoint a voluntary Chair to lead the Board of Craigmillar Literacy Trust and oversee the strategic direction of the organisation.  We also wish to recruit a voluntary Treasurer to manage the Trust’s finances and ensure its financial stability. Together with these roles we are looking to appoint new voluntary Board Members with suitable skills, knowledge and expertise, particularly in the areas of HR, fundraising and finance.

We want to foster diversity on our Board and welcome applications from people working and living in the Craigmillar community.

CLT's Read Out event hit the streets last Wednesday 10th May. The weather, brisk, breezy with lovely warm patches, could more or less be a description of the day. With our banner, giveaway books and survey sheets in place we kicked off, first the library then later at The big Chair at Hay Drive. The giveaway books were a great success, with folk saying this was what they needed to get reading again. Great chats about, what books meant to them, and whether they would enjoy reading more than they do now, friendly discussions kept breaking  The Famous Five versus The Secret Seven as favourites. Thanks for all of you who stopped to talk to us, looking forward to the next Read Out
