Club Matters Resources

Sport England have developed several resources to help support you with recruiting volunteers to your club or organisation.

Sports Volunteering in Kent

7 out of 10 sports clubs across the UK need more volunteers. Without volunteers clubs wouldn’t run, people wouldn’t take part and communities would lose a vital asset. 3.2 million people volunteer in sport across the country and one volunteer creates the capacity for 8.5 more people to play.

Kent Sport encourages both clubs and those looking to volunteer to use the Sport and Recreation Alliance – Join In website to upload and search for opportunities.

Search for opportunities via our Facebook page.

Sign up to Kent Sport’s Volunteer e-newsletter here to keep in touch with volunteer opportunities.

Volunteering explained

Sport England have a Volunteering guide that demonstrates the vital contribution volunteers make to community sport. They have compiled a comprehensive question and answer section that covers everything from how to find opportunities, to getting the most out of volunteering, plus advice for managers.
