Bookstart Volunteer Vacancy

Bookstart Volunteer Vacancy

Do you love to read with your children?

Do you have 2 hours a week to help local families develop a love of reading?

Bookstart is a national programme that aims to encourage a love of books, stories and rhymes in children from as young an age as possible. Volunteers visit families in their own homes and local library to increase parents confidence, and encourage families to develop a regular reading habit.

No experience necessary as full training will be provided, however, volunteers should feel comfortable reading stories and rhymes out loud.

Please contact Vicky Watt, Volunteer Coordinator for more details and how to apply on 01249 464008, vickyw@therisetrust.org

The RISE Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all volunteers and staff to share in this commitment. These roles are exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and are subject to satisfactory references, an enhanced disclosure and barring service check and training as appropriate.
