April 2015

Welcome to our blog, which we will update with interesting news from our groups on a regular basis.

Read Easy gets ready to move into Central England

We are currently advertising for a new Regional Adviser to cover Central England, which is a broad geographical area, covering: Derbyshire, Cambridgeshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Shropshire. Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and possibly some parts of East Anglia.

The job advert with full details of how to apply can be found at: www.charityjob.co.uk

If you know of anyone with the right qualifications who might be interested, please do let them know. The deadline for applications is Friday 1st May.

Spring Newsletter – request for new content

We are currently gathering good news stories from our regional groups for the Spring Newsletter, which we hope to have available in early May. If you have any encouraging stories and, ideally, photos to illustrate these, please send them through by the end of April to:Judith@readeasy.org.uk. Please remember to ask for permission to publish these before you send them through.

Facebook – watch this space!

A number of our Read Easy groups have their own Facebook pages which serve to promote their work and attract new coaches and potential readers through their friends and family. We are currently working to improve the impact the Read Easy Facebook pages can have.

Autumn Conference – save the date

All groups have now been informed, but a reminder to all members of established Read Easy groups, that the annual conference will be held at Chipping Campden secondary school on Saturday 17 October from 10.30-5. Do send in your booking forms at your earliest convenience.

Changes to the web-site – Thank you.

Many thanks to all the Chairs, Coordinators and Coaches who have worked with us to improve the web-site over the past few weeks and been so patient with the various technical challenges along the way. We trust that the majority are now able to log on and access the resources they need, but if anyone is still struggling, please do call the office and we will try to assist you.
