The organisational support available is excellent, and the fact that Read Easy has an established track record gives me the confidence that we will be able to make a difference in our community.Andrew Pickin – Pioneer for Read Easy Nottingham
What’s in it for you?
- use or develop your skills to offer life-changing opportunities to others
- create a new community of like-minded volunteers

How much time is needed each week?
To make good progress in this project, you would ideally have around 8 hours a week to spare, some of which would need to be during weekday working hours.
What support would I be given?
You would be supported throughout the pioneering process by Read Easy’s Regional Adviser, who would give you a full induction session before you started and then be available to support you through each stage of the process.
What resources would be available?
Read Easy UK provides all Pioneers with a Pioneer Handbook, containing detailed guidance on each stage of the process, plus a comprehensive bank of the resources you will need.
