Volunteer Reader

We are looking for volunteers to make a weekly visit to a child (age range 11 to 16 years old) in their own home, foster home or a community setting, to read aloud and discuss literature with them.

You will prepare for and deliver an hourly session of reading and discussion with a child at the same time each week, working within a clear code of conduct for visits.

We ask for a six month initial commitment from the start of your placement to offer consistency to the child.

Regular attendance at 6-weekly training meetings with other volunteers is necessary for this role.
