Volunteers needed to support adults who struggle to read

Posted in Opportunities

Read Easy Wakefield offers free, one-to-one, and confidential reading support to the 16,000+ adults in Wakefield who struggle to read in a way that impacts daily life.

Volunteers are needed to form the first Read Easy Wakefield Team. Once the team is formed the volunteers will oversee the delivery of reading sessions and act as Reading Coaches who will meet one-to-one with the adults supported.

You can make a difference by joining. Learning to read transforms lives – helping people gain confidence and self-esteem.

They can for the first time read to their children and grandchildren, read official letters, understand public transport timetables, read the instructions on medicine bottles, find work or improve their chances of advancement at work and shop alone. These are some of the things that most of us take for granted.

There is a range of volunteer opportunities available with varying levels of time commitment (from as little as an hour a week). If you have a bit of time to give, are enthusiastic, and want to make a difference to the lives of people in your community there is a role that will suit you.

Full training and support are given.
