The Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) is a registered national charity dedicated to raising language, literacy and numeracy standards in Australia. ALNF raises funds to develop, implement and sustain a number of ground-breaking programs with tangible results, supporting and up-skilling thousands of adults and children across the nation.
ALNF offers a range of programs which support vulnerable Australians to achieve sustainable, community-led outcomes. These include:
ALNF’s flagship Early Language and Literacy (EL&L) program draws on best practice from speech and language pathology and education. It provides knowledge and practical strategies to support the development of foundational language and literacy skills to early childhood and early primary educators, allied professionals, parents and community members in remote, regional and urban communities. EL&L is offered in English and also Two Ways, in English and First Languages. EL&L support is supplemented with community resources from our Literacy Packs and Share-A-Books programs. See video case study:
ALNF also has a strong history of working to support literacy in Australia’s First Languages through its Living First Languages Program which was developed in response to requests by Warumungu and Warramiri Elders. The Program combines a range of place-based and digital activities designed to support community-driven and sustainable language and literacy teaching and learning in Australia’s First Languages. A key part of this work is the digital Living First Languages Platform. The Platform provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with the technology to record, display and teach language and literacy in their own First Languages. See video case study:
