Our fabulous volunteers

We have some fantastic dedicated volunteers who help us to deliver RNIB Bookshare every week. In particular they look after our thousands of book requests that we get from educators and learners. We simply could not deliver this service without them. Not only do they help us run the service, but we also love having them in the office too!

Interested in volunteering?

Contribute your skills and passions to help learners with print-disabilities read and achieve their academic goals. By volunteering with RNIB Bookshare you'll help grow the collection to increase the choice of materials for learners of all ages and provide information and support to our customers; teachers, support staff and families. More information can be found at RNIB volunteering.


Loves to keep busy and has great customer service focus.

Debbie is one of our long serving volunteers. She joined the team in March 2017 and volunteers with us three mornings a week in Peterborough. Debbie was a teacher for 25 years and now is a part-time administrator for a schools' grant for The Jerusalem Trust online. Debbie carries out daily administrative tasks and is key to keeping your book request turn-around times as low as possible and helping to increase the number of titles in the collection, as well as helping answer your general enquiries. She is such a big help, we really wouldn't know what to do without her!
