What will I be doing?

  • During the event volunteers will be given different tasks including: stewarding, assisting sport activities, meeting & greeting including registration, supplying food and water to participants and recording results and scores.
  • Our clients love to chat and those who volunteer are encouraged to engage with clients and motivate them to participate.

What impact will this have?

  • Help support SHP's award winning over 55's sport and health programme, by providing a fun, social and inclusive environment to a vulnerable clientele group.
  • Help to remove the key barriers of physical activity amongst the homeless, whilst also improving the physical and mental health of our clients.
