The Craigmillar Literacy Trust aims to inspire everyone in Craigmillar to enjoy the pleasures and benefits of reading, writing and other literacy activities. We foster and support a lifelong love of reading, writing and sharing stories to help establish and strengthen these essential life skills. We do this through two main projects the Creating and Learning Together (CLT) Project and our Craigmillar Books for Babies Project.
