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.

Tom Mack - Active Devon
You don't have to be 'sporty' to volunteer your time, there are opportunities for everyone, whatever your experience and skills.

We know first hand that everyone who volunteers to lead activities not only make sport happen around the county, but also keeps local communities fit and active. You are simply champions in our eyes and we'll try to support you with opportunities to improve and progress at your own speed. Don't forget that as well as helping others, volunteering benefits your health, your social life, boosts your skills, confidence, and looks great on your CV. 

Below is a range of resources to help you, so dive in and enjoy. If you need specific help, please get in touch
