Volunteers needed

Published: 04 March 2022

2% of the UK population cannot read to a useful functional level. We believe in West Berks that equates to in excess of 5000 people.

Read Easy is a charity that has been set up to address this problem. We provide free one-to-one teaching delivered in a flexible relaxed manner.

The local read easy group is being set up now. To do so, we need volunteers to work on the management team, volunteer reading coaches (training is given), some funding (the read easy model enables us to teach an adult to read for about £148 per person per year) and some venues where reading lessons can be held that are safe and public.

Any help that could be offered would be most warmly received.
