Literacy Volunteers are needed to help primary school children with their reading and communication skills. Volunteers read and play word games with selected children on a one-to-one basis outside of the classroom, to give them confidence, help them enjoy reading and open doors for life-long achievement.

Volunteers need to be able to commit to visiting a local school on the same morning or afternoon each week (for at least a year) and your own transport would be an advantage but is not essential.

Training and ongoing support is provided and Volunteers will be vetted through the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Enjoy a volunteering role that is transforming the lives of children! Just half a day a week commitment from you can make all the difference to a child’s life. It’s fun for everyone!

We look forward to hearing from you!

About Literacy Volunteers

Literacy Volunteers change children’s lives by helping them with their literacy and communication skills. They visit schools and help the same selected children on a one-to-one basis outside the classroom on the same half day each week. Volunteers build a relationship with the children and share their love of reading with them, having fun together with a variety of resources. They read, play word games, do puzzles, chat and have fun with children who need their help!
