Volunteers and participants of Sporting Chance

We currently have over 40 volunteers who provide their time to assist in the delivery of our activities, administration and events. Volunteering can be very rewarding from a personal point of view, a way of learning new skills and developing knowledge or gaining experience to help with job seeking. Using one’s life skills to benefit Search and its clients or simply a chance to socialise might appeal you.

We always have opportunities for volunteers ranging from assisting with refreshments at activities to leading group sessions. We also need help with our admin systems and regular volunteers to staff reception on specific days. We offer a full training and induction programme with ongoing support to help you help us.

We recently welcomed SAGE as part of their corporate volunteering strategy, to our Sporting Chance activity at Scotswood Sports Centre. Sage staff volunteer regularly with us facilitating Walking Football, Badminton, Pickle Ball table tennis and other light activities for older people.
