We often need a little bit of extra help when it comes to making sure that we are present at as many events as possible. Sport in Mind Events Volunteers are incredibly valuable to us. We are always looking for small teams of super-duper Sport in Mind Event Volunteers to help at some very cool events throughout the year, with a huge requirement during the summer months. 

For all day events we are also offering a food voucher and every volunteer will get an item of special Sport in Mind merchandise (who doesn’t love a bit of Sport in Mind merch!!)  Check back soon for upcoming event opportunities!

Who are we looking for?  

Event volunteering is very variable. Sometimes we need support to provide marshals or cheer points at running or similar events, or it could be by supporting us at an amazing Sport in Mind stand, helping with fun sporting activities and helping us to spread the word about who we are and what we do.  

What will be my responsibilities be? 

You will help at our events by:  

  • Welcoming the public in a friendly and warm manner. 
  • Positively promoting Sport in Mind. 
  • Help raise awareness to attract new clients, volunteers, and fundraisers. 
  • Facilitate simple games by either playing yourself or taking the score. 
  • General set up and tidying up as required. 
  • Marshalling at race events
  • Car Park attendants
  • Fundraising and donation collection

What training & benefits are available?  

Sport in Mind massively value our volunteers for giving their time to help us to support events and raise awareness of the work we do to support so many people and change their lives for the better. We are delighted to offer ongoing training opportunities around sport and mental health to help you develop your skills as a volunteer and grow in confidence. In addition, you will also receive one of our amazing Sport in Mind t-shirts!  

You also get to be part of our awesome, passionate Sport in Mind volunteering community and discover all the amazing benefits that sport and activity has on your own mental wellbeing.
