British Dyslexia Association are Going Red

Wednesday 12 August 2020

Go Red for Dyslexia

The British Dyslexia Association are pleased to announce that this year, we will be joining forces with Scanning Pens and Succeed with Dyslexia to take part in Go Red for Dyslexia during Dyslexia Week.

We will be promoting our involvement throughout Dyslexia Week - 5-11 October - as part of our wider campaign activity. This year, we will be focussing on the theme of ‘Dyslexia Creates’, and the power of dyslexia to create ideas and organisations, and the invaluable contribution these changes make to the UK, as well as the challenges and inequality that can often be created by dyslexia.

Gillian Ashley, Interim CEO of the British Dyslexia Association said:

“We are delighted to be supporting the Go Red For Dyslexia campaign throughout Dyslexia Week this October. It is a brilliant way to help raise awareness and create a greater understanding of dyslexia.”

What is Go Red?

The Go Red campaign is a subsection of the Succeed With Dyslexia movement that aims to create a community for dyslexia and promote awareness while nurturing the support available for both individuals and organisations. To participate, schools, students, dyslexia associations and organisations are all going red throughout October. This could be a small gesture, like wearing a red t-shirt, or a larger gesture, like lighting their building red. The Go Red movement began in 2019 so 2020 will be its second year running.
