COVID 19 Update

We will gratefully accept applications and hold them on file and contact you in the future when there is a change in the current situation.

Support and training

We’ll give you support and training for whatever role you’re interested in. This may be shadowing or an occasional training session or just talking through what’s involved. For some roles there’s a support pack or online training to get you started, and there may also be a chance to network with other volunteers.  

The next step

If you’re interested, ask at your local library or contact us at   

We’ll ask you to complete a volunteer application form, meet us to discuss possibilities and give us the names of two referees. For some roles, such as working with vulnerable adults or children, we will ask you to complete a DBS check.
