Thank you for applying to be a Beanstalk reading helper Thank you for applying to become a Beanstalk reading helper! We’re looking forward to discussing with you in more detail the impact you will have on a child’s life. Your local office team will shortly be in touch by phone to take you through the next stage and answer any questions you may have. You will be asked to provide to provide two referees. They should not be family members or partners and ideally, but not necessarily, they should be someone who has observed you working with children in a paid or non-paid capacity. Please be ready to give the name, address, phone number and email address of your two referees when we call.
