About volunteer development
Volunteers are the lifeblood of community sport – without them, a large proportion of grassroots sport and physical activity simply wouldn’t happen.
Organisations rely on their skills, passion and commitment, but we know 70% of clubs and groups have a shortage of volunteers.
That’s why it’s so important organisations know how to recruit new volunteers as well as inspire, manage and support those already helping out.
This section has a range of resources to help you determine the skills you need, review them against the skills you have, identify and engage new volunteers, and give your existing volunteers a high quality, rewarding experience to give you the best chance of retaining them in the long term.
