Volunteering

Help us Get Berkshire Active, be a Team Berkshire Volunteer!

Get Berkshire Active is seeking volunteers to support sport/physical activity events and sessions happening throughout the year. These events are either directly supported by our organisation or are being delivered by our partners and involve a variety of sports, communities and locations.

These events vary from district school sport competitions and small community events to national championships and half marathons attracting over 15,000 runners.

You don’t need to be sporty to get involved; typical volunteer roles require enthusiastic, friendly and motivating individuals who possess a range of skills in areas including communication, leadership and organisation.

Get Berkshire Active strives to ensure that all these events; have a clear role for volunteers, offer appropriate refreshments and food and provide clear joining instructions along with time allocated for breaks.

All Team Berkshire Volunteers receive;
- A welcome letter
- A free Team Berkshire T Shirt once they complete their first hour of volunteering
- A monthly update which includes volunteering and training opportunities
- Access to heavily subsidised or free training opportunities, such as; First Aid, Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Young People, First Steps into Coaching.
