Grimm & Co is a literacy charity that relies on an amazing team of volunteers.   If you have a little free time on your hands (even just one morning or afternoon each month) and you’d like to get involved with what we do, we’d love to welcome you on board.

In return for volunteering with us, we can offer you:

Opportunities to meet new people and make friends.

Increased confidence.

The chance to gain and develop new skills in areas that interest you.

All reasonable travel expenses reimbursed by us.  We also give you lunch expenses if you work for a full day with us.

Provision of references, if needed.

The satisfaction of knowing that you’re helping to make a positive difference to young people and families in your community!
