Doorstep Library seeks to share the love of books and reading with children living in disadvantaged areas. 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 low income 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 our Information Sessions. You can find the dates of the next sessions by clicking on the link below and you must book in advance through firstname.lastname@example.org
