Volunteering

Get inspired: How to get into volunteering

Volunteering makes sport and physical activity work. All over the UK, people give up their time to boost their communities in a thousand different ways. But you don’t need to be a qualified coach to make a difference.

Truth is, everybody has something to offer. So, if you’re a book-keeping boffin or a specialist sandwich-maker scroll here is a good place to start!

Volunteering can be very rewarding and offers a great opportunity to:

  • Develop new skills
  • Improve personal development
  • Make new friends
  • Have lots of fun

Volunteering can also provide individuals with some vital sports event and work experience to stand out from the crowd creating a pathway to paid employment.
