Future Me Parents encouraged to talk to children about their dreams

A new campaign encouraging parents or carers to talk to children about their dreams for the future will be launched this week by the Scottish Government.

The Future Me campaign aims to raise the aspirations of children and improve vital literacy and numeracy skills which will last a lifetime.

Parents or guardians are being asked to discuss the future with young people and share their ambitions either online on Scotland’s giant dream wall or using the Future Me postbox at their local library.

The campaign is part of the wider Read, Write, Count initiative which aims to improve key numeracy and literacy skills amoung primary school children across Scotland to tackle educational inequalities and raise attainment in the early years and beyond.

The Future Me website provides parents and carers with tips and advice about fun and interesting ways to encourage children to realise their dreams.

Every family taking part will receive a certificate and a place on the digital dream wall for their child.
