  • Benefits of Volunteering

    Benefits of Becoming a Volunteer

    Looking to volunteer? The sport and activity sector has a whole host of voluntary opportunities – from being a coach or activity leader to taking care of the admin behind the scenes.

    Volunteering is an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only does it allow you to give back to your local community, but it also gives you a chance to develop new skills – which can be great for your CV. Whether you’re volunteering on a regular basis or at a one-off event, you’ll play an essential part in ensuring the activity runs smoothly. Without volunteers, grassroots sports and activities wouldn’t be able to happen.

    Volunteering is a great way to:

    • Meet people
    • Gain work experience
    • Make a difference
    • Do something you're passionate about
    • Fill some spare time
    • Help people
    • Get involved in your local community
    • Try something new
    • Enjoy yourself

  • ReEngage Training

    ReEngage Training

    ReEngage is a free digital platform, designed to follow on from ReActivate and provide the sector's workforce with the skills and knowledge to confidently engage with people across all communities, helping them to access the benefits of sport and physical activity.

    The training is open to individuals and employers working in sport, physical activity, leisure and fitness in England, including coaches and volunteers.

    The training provides online learning and skills development in four key areas, designed to ensure that everyone providing sports and physical activity services has the knowledge and confidence to engage with all members of their community:

    • Awareness of the prevalence, impact and treatment of long Covid
    • Engaging effectively with inactive adults with no pre-existing health conditions
    • Communication with customers, especially those who may be lacking the confidence to return to physical activity
    • Awareness of the aspects of ageing that can be controlled or influenced through physical activity.

    Thanks to funding from Sport England through the National Lotter, ReEngage is free to all providers of sport and physical activity services in England.

    Get access to the ReEngage platform for leisure, sport and fitness organisations to offer free training to your staff teams as part of the ReActivate.
