Volunteer Supports Expression of Interest Closing on 20th October 2020

Leitrim Sports Partnership are looking for volunteers in sports clubs to get involved in the volunteer supports programme. The volunteer supports project enriches club and community development programmes in disadvantaged communities and/or with disability groups. The Volunteer Supports initiative aims to successfully identify and assist targeted individuals who are volunteering in disadvantaged communities or with people with disabilities to gain community sport and physical activity leadership skills e.g. as coaches, leaders, referees, committee members etc.
Opportunities are extended to support individuals who are under-represented at all levels of volunteering, including ethnic minorities, traveller and Roma, women and people with a disability. This initiative will contribute to the development of confidence amongst participants and enhance the community through the subsequent volunteer sport development work carried out by participants. This project will contribute to greater diversity in who and how people volunteer, aid in growing the area volunteering base, and support and develop a sustainable model for the community and voluntary sector in Leitrim.
