However, we welcome interest from schools and volunteers nationwide.
If you are interested in becoming a reading volunteer, please fill in our online application form and we will find a school that matches your requirements.
The map below pinpoints schools already participating in the Schoolreaders scheme. If we do not have an immediate place available in your area, we will find an appropriate school local to you and set up the volunteer placement.
“Nothing is more important in education than making sure every child can read; in fact the whole of society has a role to play in ensuring that children become fluent readers.
