Environmental Scan of Literacy Services in Peterborough (2009)

This document deals with the gaps and challenges faced by literacy programs, services and organizations in the Ontario city of Peterborough.

The authors found that the majority of the participants in the study cited lack of funding as a major gap, one that tended to overlap with other gaps and make them worse.

The authors also found gaps in resources, locations, time, delivery, and public awareness. As well, their research identified the need for better networking, which would include an exchange of resources and improvements to referrals, clientele advocacy and lobbying, and volunteer training.
