Where to get involved

In your area

Within your local area you are likely to find:

Active Schools

There are Active Schools teams across the country who run sports clubs before school, during lunchtimes and after school.

Active Schools are always looking for volunteers to help them run sessions and organise the clubs for them.  In fact over 16,000 volunteers have supported Active Schools in the last ten years!

Community sport hubs

Community sport hubs are based in local facilities such as sport centres, community centres, club pavilions, the natural environment and/or schools, and will bring local people together and provide a home for local clubs and sports organisations.

They will also provide information, support and advice on a wide range of sports and physical activities to make it easier for local people to get involved and engage in a more active and healthier lifestyle.

The specifics of each hub and what it offers will vary according to local need and local resource.
