Listen Share Change is a partnership between Northern Ireland Housing Executive and Verbal. It is a four-year EU Peace IV-funded project running until 2022, bringing communities together with shared reading and conversation.

Volunteering Opportunity

We are looking for volunteers to join us in becoming an ‘ARMY OF READERS’. Our Readers will use mywellread, a specifically created digital platform, to read aloud to children aged 8-12 on a smart phone or tablet.

The Project will provide on-line training to over 18s who are self-isolating who wish to make an impact remotely.

After completing the on-line training, every volunteer will be ACCESS NI checked before being matched to a session and deliver to young people in their communities aged 8-12.

The programme is designed to build positive mental health and wellbeing during this challenging time of COVID-19.
