Active Dearne

Active Dearne is an exciting programme to support adults and families on low working incomes across the Dearne Valley to become more active.

Funded predominantly by Sport England, with partnership funding from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and Deanre Valley Landscape Limited, the programme will work with the local communities of Denaby, Swinton, Goldthorpe and Thurnscoe in the first year.

The programme will concentrate on three main ways of working, including

  • Community Champion roles
  • Commissioning for local groups and organisations
  • Working with employees within the Dearne Valley

Community Champion roles

We are recruiting for four community champion roles Рone each for Denaby, Swinton, Goldthorpe and Thurnscoe. The roles are 10 hours per week, paying between £8.21 and £9 per hour. Could you be one of our Community Champions?

We already have our Community Champions for Denaby, Goldthorpe and Thurnscoe, and are now looking for Swinton.

We are looking for someone who has:

  • Great knowledge of Swinton
  • Is well-known and respected in their community
  • A good communicator and motivator

If this sounds like you, apply online. Applications close on Wednesday 19 June at 12pm.

For further information about the project, or to have an informal chat about the Community Champion roles, contact Paul Cummins on 07702 211893 or paul.cummins@yorkshiresport.org.
