literacy and other community based orgs

Literacy organisations and community based organisations
I am visiting a number of organisations that have been established in response to poor literacy in their communities. It's a model that appeals to me because the literacy experts are working with health care organisations to support health consumers. I'm not sure of any similar models in Australia but keen to hear about them if they exist.
Some of the centres include:
Montreal Centre for Literacy, NY Literacy Assistance Centre, the What to Expect Foundation, +LLU in London.
