The Volunteer Tutors Organisation (VTO) is a charity, registered in 1977, which provides support for children who experience difficulties with their education. We recruit, train, place, resource and support volunteer tutors to give one-to-one educational support and guidance to children and young people who need it most. 


We need more volunteers!
