Volunteering and Sport have the power to change lives, but do all Volunteer Managers Face the Same Issues?

Volunteers in sport make up the highest percentage in the UK (22%), and volunteer management is a focus for many sporting organisations looking to expand the capacity of their sport. With the spotlight on volunteering brought about through the Gamesmakers of the London 2012 Olympic Games, what lessons have been learned about effectively engaging volunteers in sports organisations?

Volunteer Managers at Sports organisations address certain issues that are unique to the sports sector. However, they also face many issues that are universal. What can the sports sector learn from the charity sector about how to manage volunteers well?

This event aims to bring together presenters and delegates from sports and non-sports volunteer organisations, to see how sharing experiences, challenges and successes can be of mutual benefit to all.

Several of our speakers will be sharing their personal experiences of both sports and non-sports volunteering and volunteer management.
