Volunteer opportunities 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 with Team 100 Team100 is Access Sport’s Volunteering project, developing a new approach to volunteering by hyper-localising opportunities for individual communities. This means that when you volunteer, you know the people you are supporting, the clubs you are helping and the change you are creating. Team 100 is currently operating in 3 localities, so if you live near Burgess Park London, Charlton London, or Easton Bristol get in touch to join your local Team 100! Contact [email protected] Or find out more by visiting the Team 100 webpage.
