Gateshead Libraries’ Readers at Home Service delivers a literary lifeline to older people living within the borough via the support of volunteer drivers with the Royal Voluntary Service.
We urgently need more volunteers to deliver routes on weekday mornings. If you can spare a couple of hours a week or month and would like to be part of this service please get in touch. All mileage costs are reimbursed and full training is given.
Joining this project will make a real difference to the lives of people who love reading but have no opportunity of getting to their local library. This very practical volunteering role provides the chance to meet new people in your local community and give a lot of pleasure for only a little time commitment.
