Sported

Charity registered in Scotland SC043161

Sported is a leading ‘Sport for Development’ charity, helping to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people across the UK. We pair volunteers with skills from the business sector (strategy planning, fundraising, PR & Marketing, finance, governance and evaluation & impact) with our member community clubs to support them in becoming more effective and sustainable.


Current opportunities

Volunteers are carefully matched with a Sported membership club within their locality, who they then support on a one-to-one basis to help them to tract investment into their organisation. Sported support groups who are utilising sport to bring about real social difference throughout the UK so you'll be paired with a group that are doing really inspiring work. These groups are doing incredible work but require some guidance around fundraising in order to make them more sustainable and increase their capacity. This is a great opportunity to make an impact on a community group in your area. If you enjoy working with people and have a desire to make a difference, and most importantly, have fun then please do get in touch. Code: CRV

Our volunteer business mentors are paired with community sports clubs who need expertise in a particular area to become more sustainable and increase their capacity. Sported works closely to support our volunteers throughout the process, and the opportunities available are very flexible – from answering a 15 minute call from a club leader who has questions in your skill area, to delivering a workshop or a 6-month mentor placement. As a Sported volunteer, you will have the opportunity to share your professional skills and expertise with community groups, having a huge effect on the sustainability and capacity of these clubs. Full induction is offered, as well as personal development opportunities, and you will join a network of skilled Sported volunteers across the UK. You will work with a diverse range of people and organisations, and will receive support throughout from the Sported Volunteer Services team. Most importantly, you will have fun! Code: CRV
