Volunteers

Here you can find support, guidance and opportunities for you or your volunteers. In Greater Manchester there are currently 336,000 people volunteering in sport and activity ensuring there are opportunities for all ages to take part in activity and that professional sport is showcased with slick processes through event support.

Are you looking to try something new or develop and share your skills with the wider community? Greater Manchester is full of events, projects and clubs who can all provide their own unique experience. You could be someone’s event assistant, community champion, ambassador, walk leader or even a coach and don't worry about experience, many of the opportunities are there to build your experience.
