Watch our video to find out all about us and what our parents, children and volunteers think about Story Buddies Online
Wouldn't it be great if all children and all those who would value the experience of listening to them read could be brought together? Well, with the wonders of technology and a little organisation, Story Buddies Online believes that, not only is this possible, but it has the potential to sustain reading in schools for the long term whilst reaping huge mental health and wellness benefits for all those involved.
However, the Story Buddies Online concept needs people to make it happen. It needs people to help organise and promote its activities and, fundamentally, it needs people who believe they have the right skills to listen to children read - to be a Buddy - and to help them to become better readers.
Is this you?
If so, we'd love to hear from you...
Story Buddies Online exists to help schools and their pupils, and children currently being home schooled, within the local area and seeks to work with local communities to provide its services including voluntary organisations, charities and support groups which share this aim.
People who want to do something useful, feel helpful, value social interaction, particularly if they are isolating or living alone, or simply because love to listen to children read - all our DBS checked and fully trained.
