Active Schools in Moray provides opportunities for children and young people to participate in school sport and activities. Our aim is to get all children in Moray active, in and out of school, so that it benefits their health, confidence and social skills.
We offer a range of extra-curricular clubs before, during and after school that are designed to increase children’s levels of physical activity.
We are looking for volunteers who would be interested in leading or assisting at these activity sessions. Training and support is provided by Active Schools Coordinators and you would have the opportunity to learn new skills, gain experience and often qualifications.
You can decide how often you would like to volunteer, we are flexible in our approach and we will work around your availability. Sessions can include a variety of sport and activity -- from badminton to football, from dodgeball to trampolining, from netball to table tennis, from general fitness training to skipping -- there is a lot on offer for young people. Volunteers can choose to help at a lunch time, or after school, or even during school holidays. You can give as little as 45 minutes a week. Get in touch to find a role that suits you!

The North Lanarkshire Befriending Project are to help support vulnerable young people aged 8-18 in the local area through one to one outings. With social isolation, inequality and child poverty on the rise, the need for befrienders to help offer support to a child is higher than ever.
Volunteers give a young person a positive role model in their life by passing on their skills and experience, enabling them to try new things and simply providing them with a few hours of fun. Your young person may have experienced social isolation, bullying, domestic abuse or neglect, parental drug and alcohol abuse, may have learning difficulties, may be a young offender, or any combination of these. By giving up just a couple of hours every fortnight, you could make a real difference where it is needed most. Volunteers are recruited, trained and matched 1-1 with a young person, meeting them on a regular basis and participating in fun activities within the local community. Victims of circumstance, vulnerable young people often benefit from an adult befriender who they can talk to and trust. Our project has helped many young people in the past with their social skills, self-esteem, school attendance/performance, resilience, personal safety/health and relationships. As a volunteer, you would have the satisfaction of helping a young person in need, increasing your own confidence, enhancing your skills and experience – all the while having fun as you do so!
