In support of The Lowry's Literacy Project with young families in Salford Being a young parent can be hard. Often unable to continue their education, they can feel stereotyped and judged, and struggle with confidence as a result. Without support, young parents can find it difficult to explore the world of books with their children. Help The Lowry work with young parents in Salford to build confidence and encourage reading as a family through storytelling, music and visual arts, leading to the creation and publication of their own children's storybook.
