Anyone involved in sport in the UK will tell you just how crucial volunteers are and that their hard work and dedication has such a positive impact on a variety of sports up and down the country. From officials and coaches to groundskeepers and tea makers, everyone has an important part to play – whether that’s helping an event to go smoothly or the day-to-day running of the club.
At Energise Me, we know how crucial volunteers are in shaping the future of sport in Hampshire, especially when it comes to driving participation. Following on from the fantastic success of the Sports Makers and Games Makers programmes, we joined forces with Join In, a national organisation created with the aim of getting more people into sports volunteering. They’ve had a lot of success with backing from major TV channels, celebrity endorsements and a recent high profile campaign called the #BigThankYou.
The Join In website is designed to match volunteers with organisations looking for that support – and by partnering with them we hope to increase participation throughout the region.
