We need somebody who has a deep connection with literature and experience working with children in the voluntary sector, to help us successfully deliver the outcomes of our 12 month Super Reading Heroes project. This will be an incredibly varied role; The Volunteer Coordinator will be responsible for recruiting and supporting a group of volunteers who will be reading one to one with looked after children for a period of 6 months, as well as organising a series of ‘Big Days Out’ at Calderstones Park for those children taking part. As part of the wider Children and Young Persons team, you will also be responsible for planning and delivering an engaging and exciting summer school for the summer of 2020

This project is funded by The Prince of Wales’ Charitable Trust and builds on our existing BBC Children in Need funded Reading Heroes project. Super Reading Heroes is a new way for us to continue to deliver a long standing commitment to reading with Looked After Children in the North West of England. We aim to raise standards in literacy through promoting reading for pleasure.
