The VIP (Volunteer Inspire Programme) is a GreaterSport initiative that has been launched in partnership with all ten boroughs within Greater Manchester. The programme allows volunteers, coaches and officials to sign up for opportunities that organisations provide.  

Over 6650 people have already signed up to the programme and there are over 150 opportunities listed for some of the biggest sporting events in Greater Manchester. There are also many community sports clubs that could really use your help and expertise.

Almost anyone can become a volunteer, with a wide range of activities and roles it doesn't matter whether you are 16 or 80, there will be an opportunity for you. So whether you want to give others the opportunity to play sport or to develop your own skills and employability, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in sport across Greater Manchester. Some people get involved for the satisfaction of developing a club, team or activity, for others it’s the opportunity to get involved and be part of the action at the big events.
