Become a Reading Volunteer


Reading volunteers can help a variety of people learn how to read. There are several opportunities to volunteer with us. You do not need experience of working with children and young people. As long as you have enthusiasm and commitment, the opportunity is open to all.

We provide training before you begin in your placement to prepare and support you fully for your work with a child or young person so that you feel confident in volunteering in a School. Training spaces are limited and reserved upon receipt of an application form.

If you are interested in becoming a reading volunteer, contact Employment and Skills at: reading@tameside.gov.uk – all volunteers will be required to complete an application form agree to an enhanced DBS check being carried out.
