Support to help recruit volunteers

Back to News

Posted 7th June 2017

A project to help clubs recruit and train volunteers has been relaunched for 2017.

In 2016, Yorkshire Sport Foundation supported clubs across South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire to recruit and train 92 volunteers as part of #MyClubPeople.  In total, 77 people filled non-coaching roles including club welfare officer and volunteer coordinator.

This time around, as well as a focus on non-coaching volunteers, clubs could also get a grant of up to £150 to recruit young coaches.

Applications are now open, and if your club is successful in applying for a #MyClubPeople grant, you will get support to recruit volunteers, including:

  • A £150 grant
  • two places at a volunteer support workshop
  • volunteer resource pack
  • online volunteer resource centre
  • support from our team
  • a hooded top for your volunteer when they have completed 20 hours

If successful, clubs will need to:

  • Sign up to the Club Matters website
  • attend our volunteer support workshop
  • recruit a non-coaching volunteer or young coach (ages 16-19)
  • report back to us on your progress
  • support the volunteers into training as required
  • complete an end of project survey and case study

You can complete an online application HERE. Applications close on Monday 10 July 2017.
