Volunteer with us

We couldn’t share the power of books around the world without the volunteers who generously donate their time.

Share the power of books

Volunteers play a critical role in sending books to communities worldwide.

As a volunteer, you can help us prepare shipments of books, picking carefully selected titles from the shelves of our London warehouse. We’re currently looking for more people who can join us to volunteer regularly.  

If you’re interested in a regular volunteering role at our London book warehouse, please get in touch.

Volunteering – what’s involved?

The key jobs done by volunteers are finding and picking books in our warehouse and then stamping them with our logo, ready to be sent to our partners across the globe.

While our volunteering roles aren’t overly strenuous, you will be on your feet for several hours at a time. You might also need to lift heavy books or boxes, though of course we provide full training.

We are looking for people who can volunteer regularly, because you will need to get to know our systems and how we work. We also welcome groups of corporate volunteers from our corporate partners and book donors. Find out more

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, see the full range of books we provide and help share the power of books more widely. If you’re ready to find out more, we’d love to hear from you.
