Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football across the country. An estimated 400,000 people give up their time every week to help ensure that the 37,000 clubs operating in England can continue to offer the opportunity for people to play the beautiful game. Without them, the sport as we know it wouldn’t exist.
One of the main reasons that people take up volunteering is to give something back to the local community. Volunteering can make a huge difference by providing opportunities that may not otherwise exist.
Maybe you benefited from coaches giving up their time to coach you and your friends when you were younger and want to offer the same to the next generation, or you might just feel that football can change the lives of people for the better.
Whatever your reasoning for wanting to give something back, volunteering in football is a brilliant way of doing it.
