About us

Active Lincolnshire is committed to providing opportunities for everyone in Lincolnshire to be active every day. We work with partners to address inequalities and inactivity, responding to the needs of people and places.

What we do

As advocates for the positive power that physical activity has on everyone’s lives, we work in partnership to improve understanding, influence change, and tackle the challenge of inactivity.

Knowledge Hub

Our Knowledge Hub is the core of our website. Here you’ll find our guidance, advice, insight and support in all areas of physical activity and sport.

    Opportunities

    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.

    As well as signposting you to volunteering opportunities across the county, we offer a range of training and upskilling opportunities to anyone looking to volunteer. Where possible, we also offer volunteering opportunities at our own events and activities, to find out more about these please email Lynsey Norris.

  • Recruit and retain volunteers

    Recruit and retain volunteers

    Volunteers make up the majority of the workforce for clubs and activities, so they play a crucial role in making sure the activity runs smoothly. That’s why it’s important for clubs, groups and any other organisation that utilises volunteers to make sure they feel valued for the time and energy they commit.

    Investing in your volunteers not only helps to retain your current workforce, but it also attracts new volunteers – giving you a larger, stronger team to help deliver your activity or event.

    To make things easy, Club Matters has produced a comprehensive toolkit to help clubs and groups recruit, retain and develop their volunteer workforce. Visit the Club Matters website to access the free toolkit, along with a host of other handy resources.
