Did you know that 1 in 5 adults don't have the reading skills to find a plumber in the Yellow Pages?  Or that more than half of all prisoners have the reading skills at or below those of an 11 year old.

 

If this interests you, the statistics shock you or it just plain intrigues you please read on to learn how you can make a difference by supporting children to become more confident readers and make a lasting impression on their education.

 

Beanstalk is a registered national charity helping children who find reading a struggle.  We have been successfully providing a service to primary schools for over 40 years by recruiting, training and supporting volunteers to help read with children in their local primary schools for two 90 minute, one to one  sessions per week for a whole school year, term-time only.  We are now looking for additional dedicated and committed volunteers in this area. No previous experience is required as you will be fully trained and CRB enhanced checked, in line with our policy and procedures. All we ask is a commitment of a minimum of 12 months and that you have a love of reading!  

 

If you would like to find out how you can make a huge difference to a child's life, please contact westyorkshire@beanstalkcharity.org.uk -  telephone 0845 4500316 or see our website www.beanstalkcharity.org.uk.
