    An interest in reading and a desire to meet like minded reading enthusiasts.
  • Commitment :
    Minimum 1 year in the role
  • Are you a keen reader?
  • Do you enjoy discussing books with others?
  • Would you like to be part of a community of readers?
  • Could you use your passion for reading to help children?


The NSPCC is looking for people with an interest in reading to come together to share their love of reading, build a reading community and raise vital funds whilst doing so. We would like to nurture groups of like-minded book lovers to share their passion for reading, grow a community and 'turn the pages' for children who need our help.

Perhaps you might be willing to host a book group this year? Could you reach out to fellow book lovers in your city/town/village and bring them together to share your love of reading?Or perhaps you don't have the means to lead a book group but could organise a bring and buy sale with the proceeds donated to the NSPCC? We're open to ideas, we would love to hear from you!

We know that reading has benefits to mental health and we're keen to support volunteering that enriches the lives of our supporters as well as the children we support.

We'll support you with advice, skills and tools to help you fundraise and spread the word of the NSPCC. You'll learn more about how you're helping to protect children across the UK, and you'll have the opportunity to grow your skills and inspire others to support us. It's also a chance to spend time with like-minded people and make new friends.

  • Passionate about helping young people and children
