Active Volunteers

Information for Volunteers

Across the County of Devon, volunteers and coaches play a vital role. Without their time, energy and commitment many people would not be able to take part in physical activity or play sport. These people make things happen and are a vital part of grassroots sport and community activity.

As well as helping others, volunteering benefits your health, your social life, boosts your skills, confidence, and looks great on your CV. You don't have to be 'sporty' to volunteer your time, there are opportunities for everyone, whatever your experience and skills.

Click here to register on our Active Devon Champions Network, and you will gain direct access through our free newsletter to the latest volunteering opportunities, rewards and discounts, along with the latest courses and qualifications most suited to your needs.
