Corporate Volunteering

If you are looking for a volunteering opportunity for your team, we would be happy to partner with you. We don’t offer short-term volunteering (or one-day volunteering) due to our safer recruitment processes but your team can apply for any of our existing volunteer roles.

Through corporate volunteering you can:
  • Make a lasting impact
  • Support your local community as a company
  • Improve employee engagement and wellbeing
  • Boost teambuilding


What can you expect from us:
  • Professional partnership: We have been delivering reading sessions since 2011 and can offer an enjoyable, rewarding and safe volunteering experience.
  • Tailored approach: For groups of five or more volunteers we will come to your workplace and carry out DBS checks.  We can also schedule a tailor-made training session just for your employees.

If you would like to find out more about corporate volunteering, please look through our corporate volunteering brochure or you can email us at

As taken as I was by Doorstep Library’s mission, at first I was intimidated by the idea of stepping into someone else’s home. I was also worried that I had bitten off more than I could chew with the time commitment. Those fears dissipated in the very first few weeks of volunteering. The families I volunteer with are so warm, gracious and welcoming. The children are delighted to see us and you can really see what a difference having a friendly face with a backpack full of books coming to their door makes. I find the time commitment very manageable too. I’m able to work flexibly from home and on project, the time flies. I found that volunteering is a lovely addition to my week. Reading with my families never fails to make me smile.
