One of the main aims of the Active Schools & Community Sport service is to recruit and develop volunteers to support the delivery of sporting opportunities within the schools and communities of West Lothian.

 Why volunteer?

Volunteering can help provide opportunities to:

  • Gain practical experience
  • Develop transferable skills and learning
  • Foster key relationships with local partners- potential references /future employers
  • Access training and qualifications (if appropriate)
  • Make a difference and have fun!

 Key outcomes of becoming involved in volunteering are to develop confidence through communication with groups, listening to individuals and supporting people to become more physically active.

Volunteering can provide a real sense of personal fulfilment and achievement, with the opportunity to make friends, establish new contacts, and reward you by developing new skills and mastering fresh challenges. 

 You don’t need to hold any qualifications to enable you to volunteer and support sport in some capacity.
