Why Volunteer

There are many reasons why people choose to become volunteers, here are just a few examples of why we have managed to achieve 33,000 volunteer hours in since 2014!

Volunteers are the backbone of community sport, without you our sporting programmes cannot function, we have a number of volunteer opportunities with local sports clubs, sporting events and community outreach.

It’s fun! Whether you are looking to get out of the house, meet new people or would like to help others, volunteering provides you with everything you need to gain the feel good factor.

Looking for a new career? Our Volunteer Programme may provide you with the platform for your perfect role within the sport and leisure industry. Even if sport isn’t your chosen career path, the skills and knowledge you will learn to work with people and as part of a team will help you develop as a person and give you the experience you need for your CV!
