Volunteer With Energize

Volunteer 11

Volunteers are essential in helping people become physically active and making sport happen. Without people who provide their valuable time and effort, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin wouldn’t be the same place!

Every volunteer that gives their time has an important contribution to local life; this should be recognised by all across the county and beyond.

Why volunteer for Energize?

Energize are involved with a wide range of activity across the area. From events in schools, sports clubs and other community organisations, there is never a shortage of things to do.

We treat all volunteers as an individual yet ensure everyone feels part of a wider group of people making things happen. Energize offer volunteers the support they need to get where they want to be; whatever life stage an individual is at, we welcome all to get involved.


How can i get involved?

There are many options for you to volunteer locally. Do any of the statements below match what you are looking for? Follow the links for more information –

‘I want to volunteer regularly’ – The Energize Volunteer Academy is a great option for you. This allows you to access events in schools, sports clubs and other community settings and get rewarded for your time.

‘I would like to support people with a disability’ – The Inclusively Fit Project Buddy Scheme is perfect for you. This scheme allows you to help disabled people access sport and physical activity where they may not get the chance to otherwise.

‘I would like to help young people get in to positive activities’ – The More Than Sport project is one way you could do this. This project is looking for mentors to help young people access sport and volunteering. Please contact Nick Herbert (nick.herbert@energizestw.org.uk) if you are interested in hearing more about this opportunity.


Do you need volunteers to support your activity? 

We support any provider (sports club/community organisation and more) that needs a few helping hands to make sure their event or activity is a success. Please follow this link for more information.
