Get involved

This is 10 year old Aria. She has been visited by Jocelyn every Thursday afternoon for the past three years. Jocelyn chooses books which reflect Aria’s many interests and when Jocelyn noticed that Aria had a flair for storytelling she encouraged her to join her local youth theatre (and was even in the front row of her first show).

Here at Doorstep Library, our volunteers make as many stories as they read. By making a monthly gift to Doorstep Library you can support another one of these stories to unfold.

Involve your Company

Corporate involvement has the potential to make a big impact on our families in many ways, and we are very keen to look for businesses prepared to support us.

Here are some of the ways your company could make a difference to our charity and the families we support:

  • Volunteering and fundraising
  • Payroll giving
  • Gifts in kind
  • Access to expertise
  • Contacts sharing


The great thing about fundraising is that not only does it inspire multiple contributions, but it helps raise awareness of the work we do. Here are some examples of common (and not-so-common) ways to contribute:

  • Organise your own event: a book swap for example. Pub quizzes and dinner parties are other popular fundraising events
  • If you’re a member of a rotary club or local WI, perhaps you could suggest us as a charity to support
  • It is increasingly popular to offer people the option to donate to charity instead of receiving birthday or wedding presents
  • Many people and organisations make a Christmas charity donation instead of sending Christmas cards
  • Many people offer the option of a donation to charity instead of flowers at a funeral, or as part of their will
  • Get sponsorship for doing something challenging, such as a marathon or skydive.
