Volunteering for us

We occasionally have vacancies in our small team of office volunteers.

A little like we imagine Santa’s Elves might, our volunteers carry out a huge range of tasks that play a vital role in helping to keep the office going. they also support the huge logistical operation that is delivering 30 000 brand new books to children’s hospitals around the UK every year. There’s definitely a bit of magic dust in the air around them.

We don’t have any vacancies at present, but if you would like to join our waiting list please email cherry@readforgood.org.

If you are hoping to volunteer for our hospital programme, sadly we cannot offer a placement to you. Our storytellers are professionally trained and have specific experience of working with vulnerable children and young adults. They undergo rigorous checks, references and training before working on the wards with children. However, you could contact your local hospital directly offering to volunteer, as some hospitals have a programme for volunteers.

And finally…one thing you can always do is encourage your local school to run Readathon!
