Volunteering and jobs in sport

Volunteering in sport

It is widely recognised that British sport is built on the hard work and dedication of volunteers.

If you are new to volunteering, go to Sport England's volunteers page which will give you ideas about how to volunteer. On a local level, you may wish to contact the Ealing Community and Voluntary Service or look at Ealing Council's community grants webpage, which has links to volunteering organisations.
