7 out of 10 sports clubs across the UK need more volunteers. Without volunteers clubs wouldn’t run, people wouldn’t take part in sport and other activities, and communities would lose a vital asset. One volunteer creates the capacity for 8.5 more people to play. Volunteering helps make sport happen.
We’ve pulled together some advice and guidance to help develop volunteering across Kent & Medway.
