INTRODUCTION TO TEAM100

EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES TO GET MORE YOUNG PEOPLE LIVING ACTIVE, HEALTHY LIVES 

Team100 is Access Sport's pilot volunteering project. Funded by Sport England this project will create communities of 100 local people, diverse in background, age, culture and employment but bought together by a shared desire to get more young people living active, healthy lives. Each Team100 is co-designed around the local need, this means that when you volunteer, you know the people you are supporting, the clubs you are helping and the change you are creating.

Team100 is currently available in 3 localities: Burgess Park – Southwark, Charlton - Greenwich and Easton & St Pauls, Bristol. These areas are full of inspiring community champions, local activators and thriving sports clubs. Team100 will develop, connect and inspire these members.

No matter your background, Team100 is about engaging local communities, connecting and inspiring people in aid of getting young people healthier and more active. 

          

WHAT DO I DO IN TEAM100?

Being a member of your local team100 is about supporting your community and local sports clubs, this can be from the comfort of your own home; updating social media, admin tasks or fundraising. Being a member could mean, supporting sessions with your friends, helping out at summer-camps or leading a walking/cycling group to schools. Team100 also allows you to fulfil the classic volunteer roles like coaching and mentoring at sessions. If you have specific skills such as bid writing, monitoring and evaluation or law we want you to join our team.

WHAT MAKES TEAM100 DIFFERENT?

Key to the success of Team100 will be the digital campaign, co-designed with local people and industry leading experts Teneo Blue Rubicon. The campaign will:

  • Redefine what it means to volunteer
  • Be locally owned with a strong brand
  • Help get the community more healthy and active

A database and digital platform will be developed to successfully engage community with volunteers, providing them with:

  • Opportunities tailored to the volunteers’ needs and situations
  • Qualifications and development pathways
  • Access to high profile volunteering opportunities
  • Invitations to celebration events

 

WE BELIEVE…

That not everyone is in the same situation, everyone has their own reasons for volunteering and reasons for not. Team100 is designed to be specific to your community, the project is interested in what works, for which people and where. Each Team100 is co-designed with local members of the community so it is tailored for its team members. If you want to join your local team to simply support others, boost your CV with our qualifications and courses – then get in touch and be a part of Team100.
