Our History

Our Histroy

The Trust has always been involved in promoting improved practice and outcomes for individuals with dyslexia and specific learning difficulties.

In 2007 the 'No To Failure' project was launched to set out different ways of 'getting it right' and to 'skill up' schools towards becoming fully inclusive. In order to accomplish this, four main charities joined forces to work collaboratively and to strengthen the impact across the sector.

In 2009 following the 'No to Failure' report and as a result of Sir Jim Rose's report Identifying and Teaching Children and Young People with Dyslexia and Learning Difficulties, the government showed a commitment to train 4000 specialist teachers. To help facilitate this and other improvements in the sector, the four founding 'No to Failure' charities were joined by two further organisations and the Dyslexia-SpLD Trust was born.
