What is 26TEN?

26 TEN Literacy Program

 Impact Communities is proud to be a part of 26TEN’s network, supporting adult literacy, numeracy and communication in Tasmania. 

What is 26TEN?

We live in a great State, with many opportunities for an exciting future. But too many adult Tasmanians aren’t reaching their potential. Some of us are held back because our skills in reading, writing, numeracy and oral communication aren’t good enough for the demands of daily life and work in the modern world.

26TEN aims to change this. 26TEN enables business, community groups, government, education and training providers, and individuals to work together to ensure all adults have the reading, writing, numeracy and communication skills they need for life and work. 

Our name represents the 26 letters of the alphabet and ten digits we use for counting – the tools for life.

26TEN is delighted that Impact Communities is a member of our network, with a practical plan for supporting people with low literacy and promoting clear communication. If you or someone you know needs help with reading, writing or maths, please call 1300 00 2610.
