Reading help for youngsters
Although it works in more than 120 countries fighting for the rights of children, and helping them to fulfil their potential, Save the Children also has a UK programmes team, delivering early intervention programmes in the Kent area.
The charity’s Born to Read programme places reading volunteers in primary schools to support the development of literacy with children who have fallen behind.
Now Save the Children needs more volunteers to help deliver this programme. Volunteers need to commit to visiting a local primary school twice a week for 90 minutes per visit (30 minutes with three children) and be available to cover three school terms.
