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.
You could also bring the skills that you have professionally, such as marketing, accounting, administration or so much more, to support community sport projects and clubs. If your work provides you with volunteer days, could you use them to support physical activity and sport provision in your community. Get in touch with us, or your local Community and Voluntary Service (CVS) to see how you can get involved.
The Pass On Your Passion campaign has been celebrating the female workforce that make sport and physical activity happen across the north of England. In Greater Manchester, we will see women share their stories of how they overcame their own barriers to get involved in volunteering with the hope of inspiring others to overcome their own barriers and start their own journey into volunteering
