Get Involved


We currently support 3,300 children and for each child to take home 20 books we need to collect in excess of 80,000 books. Can you help us? We are looking for more schools to hold collections of pre-loved excellent quality children’s books. We pass on books suitable for children aged 4-11 including unused sticker books, colouring books and activity books.

As our way of saying thank you, each child that donates will receive a thank you letter and small Delight gift. Please get in touch to receive a schools collection pack.

Arts Organisations

If you are an arts organisation based in the South East looking to make a huge impact we want to hear from you! We are continually looking for arts organisations to create partnerships with and develop collaborative projects. If you have a creative project idea you’d like to discuss with us that will help primary children increase literacy levels please get in touch.


Volunteer (young people)

We run our youth volunteering opportunities through schools and colleges so if you are aged 14+ and would like to get involved with Delight why not speak to a teacher and see if your school would be interested in setting up a programme. Alternatively get in touch and we will contact your school or college.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Delight volunteering programme can be used as the volunteering aspect of your Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Volunteer (adult)


If you have a few hours to spare and would like to get involved with a local charity we could certainly use your help!
We have a range of volunteering opportunities from helping sort books and distribute them to our supported schools to offering your expertise in helping Delight flourish.

However you want to volunteer we would welcome your support. Please get in touch.
