Read Easy Wyre Forest seek volunteers to help adults who struggle with reading 6th February 2018

There are more than 5,000 adults in the Wyre Forest area who struggle with reading, some that can barely read at all. For those who can’t read, some everyday tasks can be highly stressful experiences, with people often left feeling isolated. But many resist joining adult education classes, because of embarrassment and fear of failure.

Read Easy UK was set up in 2011 to tackle this ‘invisible’ problem and has already helped hundreds of people learn to read. Through its volunteers, Read Easy offers free, friendly, one-to-one coaching for any adult who struggles with reading.

Lisa Lawson and Heiddi Rowley from the LRC at Kidderminster College are looking for another two or three volunteers to join the committee for Read Easy Wyre Forest. No particular literacy skills or qualifications are required, but if you have a couple of hours to spare each week, why not consider this opportunity to use your skills and experience to change peoples’ lives.
