Education Program Coordinator

10 Jul 2024


The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation ('BCF') is one of Sydney's largest frontline charities and has been operating for 38 years. Our mission is to provide assistance to address the cause and effect of homelessness and poverty faced by marginalised individuals. We succeed in achieving this through a combination of caring services like food provision, social welfare and education support.

In 2024, BCF introduced a holistic literacy program in our schools across NT and NSW, called 'All About Reading'. A research-based, multisensory, mastery program based on the Orton-Gillingham approach that covers phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension. It has been proven to be effective instruction for all struggling readers including children diagnosed with dyslexia.

The Rev. Bill Crews Literacy program is designed to assist children, often from disadvantaged or traumatic backgrounds, with low literacy, to achieve the same educational outcomes as their peers by giving them the necessary reading skills to engage effectively in classroom activities and become lifelong learners
