Volunteers needed to support adults who struggle to read

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.

This newly formed team needs someone to lead them. Management. If you’re inspired to lead others and be part of a genuinely transformational charity, then why not volunteer with Read Easy and use your leadership skills to guide and support a team of local volunteers. You will manage meetings, set agendas, take responsibility for the project, network within your local community and be a passionate spokesperson for your local group. This is a hugely important role in the Management Team, and you will be responsible for ensuring the proper and effective direction of your local group from the front. This role will appeal to people who are motivated by managing a team of diverse volunteers, and by the challenge of ultimately helping hundreds of adults in their community who can’t read.

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.
