It has been described that volunteers are the lifeblood of community sport. Here at Access Sport we have a number of exciting opportunities for you to volunteer your time with us, including community sports events, fundraising events, and within the community clubs that we develop where there are a multitude of ways you can lend a hand and change young lives through sport!

Volunteer at a fundraising event 

We are proud to be the official charity partner for ICAP L'Etape London by Le Tour de France, taking place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, East London, each September. 

To ensure the smooth running of the event, we rely on the support of our wonderful event volunteers. 

Roles on the day include:

  • Handing out medals to riders as they cross the finish line 
  • Representing Access Sport at our charity tent in the event village 
  • Supporting any activity that we provide in the event village, e.g. BMX sessions on our portable track
  • Supporting the running of the various feed stations along the route 

   

 Volunteer at a community event 

Through our three award-winning programmes, our club team often arrange exciting community sports events engaging hundreds of local children and young people. Previous events include sports festivals, BMX races - and many more!

How you can help at these events:

  • Co-ordinate and manage both mainstream and disabled school competitors e.g. at BMX School Games Series, Ignite Annual Showcase
  • Supporting event operations: set up, registration, running of the event activities, pack down
  • Supporting a competitive racing event at the BMX School Games: start gate mashal, track co-ordinator, finish line officia

    

 Support your local community sports club 

The community sports clubs that we support exist through the generous support of inspirational volunteers. 

You can support a community sport club in a broad range of different ways, for example:

  • Supporting the coaching of sessions
  • Promoting sessions in the local community 
  • Helping to set up outreach in the local community
  • Being the club's welfare officer
  • Looking after the club's social media to help increase their reach 
  • Supporting the club with their finances/ admin 
  • Recruiting volunteers to support the club's sustainability and growth 

... the list goes on!
