Volunteer to Listen to Children Read

Please see the below from

Our reading volunteers are desperately needed because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Thousands of children won’t have had enough reading practice during the first lockdown let alone the second. In a normal year, one in four children leave primary school unable to read well. Most children will have missed a term of school, so the reading gap is now even wider. Children who struggle with reading are more likely to live in poverty and be unemployed as adults. 

Schoolreaders needs more volunteers in your area to support children’s reading and prevent them falling further behind. If you want to make a difference to a child’s life, apply to become a Schoolreader. No qualifications are needed; just a love of reading and some spare time each week.  

To join us, please visit the website or call 01234 924111 for further information.
