Representation matters, which is why we want our volunteers to reflect the diversity of the community groups we work with. We’re actively encouraging applicants from ethnically diverse backgrounds to apply as we are currently under-represented in this space.
You will meet the inspirational faces of community groups across the UK and immerse yourself in their work; use your existing skills whilst developing new ones; guide members to become more inclusive; network with like-minded individuals helping grassroots clubs. You'll use your professional skills to help groups overcome operational challenges, become better equipped for the future, and tackle inequality in sport.
Our roles are quite flexible and work around your schedule. We only share opportunities we think are relevant to you. With most of our volunteering support being delivered digitally, it’s even easier to get started supporting members across our network, to help sports groups survive; and so much more.
