Did you know that 7 out of 10 clubs need volunteers and that each volunteer generates capacity for 8.5 more people to participate in our sport? In the current funding climate, it makes complete sense to utilise the skills of passionate volunteers and look after the sustainability of your club.
Volunteers have always played a vital part in the sport and physical activity sector. Without them, most activity simply wouldn’t happen.
This volunteer focused Club Digest will walk you through ways you can recruit new volunteers, explore how you can keep your volunteers happy and provide articles on how volunteers are growing our sport.
If you have a positive story to share of a volunteer in your club, please complete this short form to let us know about it and we could feature it for volunteer week 2019.
