Volunteering not only benefits those at the receiving end but it can be a hugely rewarding experience for the volunteer. It can give back in so many ways:
• It makes you happier. People who volunteer in sport often feel a sense of pride and say that their life has a sense of purpose.
• You'll meet new people. Volunteering in sport is a great way to make new friends and connections. As a volunteer at you're often working as part of a team of volunteers. A shared love of sport and physical activity often leads to new friendships.
• It's a great way to develop new skills. Volunteering can help you to improve current skills or develop new ones. Different roles will offer different opportunities. You may also be offered training to develop new skills that will help you in your role.
Volunteers have always played a vital part in the sport and physical activity sector. Without them, most activity simply wouldn't happen. Approximately 150,000 Somerset residents volunteer at least once a month, a large number of these in sport and physical activity.
If you are interested in getting involved and volunteering with SASP, we have options for you. From a weekly commitment to one-off events, there is a range of flexible opportunities available such as health walker leaders, multi-sport club volunteers and much more.
