The impacts of family literacy, language and numeracy learning (FLLN) are vast. In addition to building confidence and improving attitudes to education, both in children and adults, FLLN has a key role to play in increasing social inclusion and reducing the intergenerational transfer of disadvantage. For FLLN to have these wideranging effects, however, practice needs to be both effective and inclusive, from recruitment through teaching and, when appropriate, assessment and accreditation.

This paper offers a brief summary of recent and ongoing NRDC research and development looking at this topic, drawing on international research and UK case studies to offer practitioners and policy-makers guidance on the effective provision of FLLN.
