  1. Mentor placements - Volunteers are matches with a Sported member within their locality, who they support on a one-to-one basis typically for a period of between 3 - 6 months.
  2. Light Touch Support - Volunteers provide short-term, flexible support to Sported members with specific questions/challenges. The support can be one-off advice or 1-3 sessions, delivered via your chosen communication method.This is perfect for volunteers who may not have time to commit to an extended mentor placement.
