Pioneer Stage

This group is currently at Pioneer Stage. This means that the group is in the process of being developed and set up. Please contact the group’s Pioneer (contact details above) in order to find out more and to discover how you can get involved.

About the group:

Read Easy is looking for volunteers to join a group in Stockport, which will establish and run our programme of one-to-one tuition for adults who would like to develop their reading. Read Easy offers a free, friendly and flexible approach to learning to read for any adult who either cannot read or lacks confidence with reading. This is an opportunity to work with a small group of like-minded people to offer life changing opportunities to local people. You don’t need to have a background in teaching or adult literacy to be involved, just some spare time and a commitment to the work we do.

We are currently seeking volunteers who might want to take on any of the following roles:

  • Co-ordinator
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Literacy Specialist
  • Fundraiser
  • Publicity Organiser
  • Data Protection Champion
  • Safeguarding Champion
  • Volunteer Recruiter
  • Referrals Networker
  • Venue Organiser

Once the group is established, we will also be looking for volunteers who would like to train to become Reading Coaches.

We would love to hear from you if you like the sound of what we do and you think you would like to be involved. Please contact Marie Joyce, Pioneer for Stockport, at stockportpioneer@ readeasy.org.uk or on 07957 516443 to find out more.

If you are interested in supporting our group once we are established though Reader referrals, providing a venue for us to use or sponsorship of our work locally, please do get in touch.
