Sported supports over 3,000 amazing community groups that use the power of sport to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people. We support sporting groups in and around Aberdeen City.
Our volunteers are carefully matched with a Sported member clubs within their locality, who they then support on a one-to-one basis to help them with the business side of their affairs.
We 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 the business side of their organisation in order to survive and thrive.

The woodlands in and around Forres are highly valued community assets. Forres Community Woodlands Trust aims to utilise the potential of these woodlands to provide a wide range of community benefits.
These include providing local people and visitors to the area with ready access to special places to enjoy peace and quiet, healthy exercise, education and recreation.
Our vision, therefore, is to maintain and enhance the Trust’s woodlands as bio-diverse habitats which provide recreational and educational opportunities.
Our volunteer activities take place mostly in our FCWT woods, that is either Sanquhar Wood or Muiry. On average we meet one Saturday morning each month from 10 to 12 o'clock and we carry out maintenance work, for example removing young foreign species with loppers and hand saws like rhododendron, sitka spruce or Douglas fir or we plant trees or cut back bracken. Our aim is to remove as many foreign species as possible and replace them with native trees.

Growing Auchmuty (GA) is a community gardening project funded by Big Lottery from 2018-2021. Coming into its final 9 months – the project’s Senior Coordinator wants to welcome an experienced worker to the small voluntary team to help support the project’s transition to self-sustainability by September 2021.
GA’s core focus is to build community in the Auchmuty area of Glenrothes. It does this through the development of green projects: outdoor & polytunnel horticulture, maintaining a community garden, running gardening initiatives with local groups... GA needs a committed and experienced person to help with its development and establishment as an independent organisation. This involves putting in place a legal structure, establishing a capable core team, rationalising GA’s systems of work (rotas, health & safety, policies), and most importantly establishing a fundraising strategy.
You will have a decision-making role, alongside long-term volunteers and staff. You will share your experience, skills, & commitment with volunteers in a way which inspires them to become capable & enthusiastic project workers.
This is your chance to make a real difference to an area in need. Every effort you make will be a vital part of Growing Auchmuty’s proper establishment as a sustainable and wholesome resource for the community, facilitating human connection and environmental action in Auchmuty for years to come.

Would you like to meet new people?
Do you have a little free time?
The pantry@brag was born as a coronavirus emergency response, but now it will continue to run as a people’s pantry offering affordable food to the Benarty area. The food the pantry receives mostly comes from the charity Fareshare which receives surplus food stock from supermarkets and they then deliver to us on a weekly basis, we also receive donated food from local businesses. As the lockdown has eased we are finding ourselves with less volunteers as those we had were furloughed and have recently returned to work. We need Volunteers to help with the set-up of the pantry and to serve our members at the pantry when open. We are also looking for packers and delivery drivers.
In return you will:
Gain confidence in dealing with the public. Be able to help to reduce food waste. Gain valuable work experience and reference. Meet new people and perhaps widen your social circle.
