Volunteering opportunities from our Partners

Team Up is a social venture charity who runs a voluntary leadership programme. Their programme trains exceptional role models to tutor children in order to help them reach their academic potential.

Team Up works in primary and secondary schools across London, providing small-group tuition to pupils that is effective, affordable and delivered by inspiring tutors. Their volunteer tutors work with pupils in groups of 1:3 to deliver high quality tuition to help increase the children’s academic results and raise their aspirations.

To become part of their team of volunteer tutors, please visit their website to enquire.

The largest area of The Children’s Literacy Charity’s work is the provision of bespoke, high-quality, one-to-one literacy interventions that take place within a Literacy Lab. Literacy Labs can be set up in available spaces within your school.

The Children’s Literacy Charity aim to dramatically narrow or in some cases close literacy gaps for children and young people as early as possible. The intensive tuition is delivered on a one-to-one basis by highly trained experts who are qualified to teach children with specific learning difficulties.

Experts from The Children’s Literacy Charity follow a programme of high-quality, intensive, multi-sensory, phonics based literacy intervention that enables children to learn essential literacy skills at their own pace.

Doorstep Library seeks to share the love of books and reading with children.  Direct into their homes, volunteers read to the children, inspiring them to embrace books, and aspire for greater attainment.

Each week during term time after school, home reading volunteers visit families and provide one on one reading sessions with each child, in addition to offering them a lending library.  As relationships develop with the families, volunteers encourage the parents to take up their own reading time with their children, sharing together the pleasure and enjoyment offered through a book.

To find out more about what being a Home Reading Volunteer entails, come along to one of their Information Sessions. You can find the dates of the next sessions by clicking on the link below and you must book in advance through enquiries@doorsteplibrary.org.uk

Beanstalk is a national charity that provides one-to-one literacy support to children who struggle with their reading ability and confidence. They believe life is better when everyone can read well and express themselves with confidence. Sadly, last year over 200,000 children left primary school unable to read to the expected level.

Beanstalk’s service is simple yet highly effective. They recruit, train and support volunteers to provide consistent, one-to-one literacy support to primary school children who need their help. Becoming a Beanstalk trained reading helper is a great way to make a difference to a child’s life and enjoy a rewarding volunteering experience. Beanstalk reading helpers change lives: By volunteering as a Beanstalk reading helper you’ll pass on your skills and experience, and make a lasting difference in your local community:
