Back at the beginning of 2018 we were contacted by Tasmanian superstar Rosie Martin who you might know as the 2017 Tasmanian Australian of the Year for her work teaching literacy and communication to prisioners. Rosie asked us to contribute a short article that would outline how poor literacy skills affects the people we work with day to day. Our article makes up just part of a huge body of work that Rosie has pooled together for a project called Communicating: The Heart of Literacy. It's a public dialogue about communication, literacy, enablement, collaboration, and relational trust and we'd encourage you to head to www.chattermatters.com.au to read some incredible Tasmanian stories.
