Become a Pirate Crewmate

Volunteers are needed for our Virtual Ship, running daily online through Microsoft Teams. We will be run face to face volunteering in Hackney and Haringey from Aug.
All volunteers are DBS checked and as such require a UK residence.


So you think you have what it takes to be a Volunteer Crewmate? Great! Please fill in the details below.

Your Application



Where would you like to volunteer?
We have two physical Pirate Ships in neighbouring boroughs (Hackney and Haringey) and a Virtual Ship. At the moment, everyone is on the Virtual Ship but it would be useful for us to know your preference for when we eventually reopen.



About You

Now, we’d like to ask a few questions about you. These will help us with our commitment to monitoring diversity, as well as better understanding our volunteers.













Thanks for your interest in the Literacy Pirates.

Once you’ve completed our Volunteer Sign Up form please use our calendar to book your training session.
