Volunteers are urgently needed to help children with reading at schools in north Sheffield.

Reading Matters, a Yorkshire-based literacy charity, said it needs more people to come forward to support children who are reluctant and struggling readers.

All successful applicants will be given full training and a DBS check before starting as volunteers.

Volunteers need to give up two hours of their time each week for the scheme, with the reading mentors providing one-to-one support to children. For more information, contact Reading Matters on 01274 692219 or email christine@readingmatters.org.uk.
