Volunteers needed for reading skills support

A CHARITY which helps people improve their reading skills is looking for volunteers.

Read Easy North and West Wiltshire needs more coaches to ensure it continues to meet demand for help with literacy.

Coaches normally meet the reader they are working with twice a week for around half an hour at a time.

The key characteristics required include empathy because most readers have had a difficult experience at school, and will have had to summon up courage to return to reading but also flexibility.

The charity is also keen to expand the number of volunteer coordinators organising its work in the north and west of the county including in the Melksham area. The role involves meeting new readers and matching them to coaches, and helping with ongoing training.

To find out more about volunteering as a coach or coordinator, contact Sue Williams on 07367 100 936 or email, nwwrecruiter@ readeasy.org.uk.
