Volunteer with Doorstep Library

Visiting the same 5 families every week, Doorstep Library volunteers turn up on the doorstep with rucksacks full of stories. They started in H&F in 2010 and now run 6 projects and visit over 300 children weekly.

By making reading fun first, they inspire children to experience the joy of stories and books. They empower parents to get involved in their children’s education and, sometimes, we’re there as extra support, whether we’re signposting a local family service, lending an ear, or just being a friendly face.
