At Sported we believe that Sport has the power to change young lives working with amazing community sport organisations that are using the power of sport to tackle the root causes of some of society’s biggest problems and giving disadvantaged young people the opportunities, confidence and support to overcome their personal hurdles and succeed in life.
Sported relies on the support of over 280 skilled and experienced volunteers to deliver vital services to these sports groups- enabling them to develop, sustain and grow to the needs and demands of the disadvantaged communities they work within.
Comic Relief is backing Sported with a two year grant of over £245,000. This will enable Sported to support community sport for development organisations further, by working with more volunteers to provide an increased range of services and help for the sector. Support will range from single sessions for instance on grant application or monitoring and evaluation, to longer term mentor support on development and financial planning.
We are now recruiting for exceptional volunteers with a desire to share skills and expertise in a range of areas including; business planning, writing funding applications, finance, marketing, PR, impact measurement, staff and volunteer management. In return, we provide a unique and rewarding volunteer experience with training, personal development opportunities, and support from our Volunteer Services team and our locally based UK Regional and National Managers.
