Beanstalk seeks volunteers to help County Durham children read
6:16pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
VOLUNTEERS are needed in County Durham to help children catch up with their reading.
Beanstalk is a national literacy charity that recruits, vets, trains and supports volunteers to work in primary schools with children who have fallen behind with their reading.
Emma Rose, recruitment and training executive at Beanstalk, said the charity is in urgent need of volunteers to work in County Durham.
Volunteers are matched with three children who they will work with on a regular basis, building a relationship to help them read, grow and succeed.
Mrs Rose said: “To become a Beanstalk reading volunteer you must be able to spare three hours per week, plus your travel time, commit for at least a year, have been resident in the UK for at least two years, be fluent in English, be a competent reader, and believe in the importance of literacy.
“We need people to get involved and make a real difference to a child’s future.”
