Ensuring all those involved in the management of sport are supported and understand their roles and responsibilities

Well managed organisations tend to be more successful, sustainable and prepared in the event of an emergency. How does your sports club, association, group or charity ensure the longevity and future of your offer?

Is your structure set-up for the long-term and able to accommodate growth with interest?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of community sport – without them, a large proportion of grassroots sport and physical activity simply wouldn’t exist. Organisations rely on their skills, passion and commitment, but we know volunteer recruitment and retainment can be one of the biggest barriers to sport offers. That’s why it’s so important organisations know how to attract new volunteers as well as inspire, manage and support those already helping out. Do all those involved with the management of the organisation understand their roles and responsibilities, and what is expected of them?

You’ll find information and resources to help you determine the skills you need, review them against the skills you have, identify and engage new volunteers, and give your existing volunteers a high quality, rewarding experience to give you the best chance of retaining them in the long term, below.
