    Volunteering gives me a sense of achievement

Whether you’re looking to read with adults or children or even wanting to volunteer at our organisational home in Calderstones Park, we have a variety of volunteering opportunities on offer.

Find out where we’re currently looking for reading volunteers.

If you’d like to find out more, please fill out the form below, letting us know where you’re based and how you could help.

We’ll aim to contact you within five working days to explore next steps.

If you don’t see anything suitable today, please do sign up to our newsletter or follow us on social media (@thereaderorg) as we may well have opportunities in your area coming soon.

Be Part of the Story

Please note: if you’re interested in volunteering in a non-Shared Reading role at Calderstones, ignore the drop-down menu that asks ‘Who are you interested in reading with?’ and let us know how you’d like to help in the free text box at the bottom of the form (‘What is it about volunteering with The Reader that interests you?*’)
