What could you achieve through volunteering?

By Elliot.Pottinger@energizestw.org.uk on September 11, 2017 in Uncategorized

Energize are currently recruiting for new volunteers!

Whether you are unemployed, retired, studying or in full time work looking to do something different, we would love to hear from you. All applications are considered and we welcome all who have the motiviation to improve other peoples lives as well as their own through volunteering.

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 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 all feel 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.
