The #PassOnYourPassion campaign returns on 16th September for a second tour of the north of England, kicking off in West Yorkshire with the final week of the tour coming to Greater Manchester from 9th - 15th December. The campaign will showcase female volunteers and coaches with the aim of encouraging more women and girls into volunteering or coaching roles within sport. We know that people face a range of barriers into volunteering and coaching, and we aim to use the week to highlight how women across Greater Manchester have overcome some of these barriers, hoping to highlight to other women, that it is possible, despite the barriers they may face.
We’d like to use the campaign to highlight key barriers that women face and the different circumstances in which these barriers present themselves and showcase real life success stories of how women have overcome them in the hope to encourage more people to do the same.
If you work with any female volunteers or coaches, or are one yourself, with a great story to tell, then we want to share this story with the hope of inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.
