Could you make a difference through football?

Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football

Without the time, dedication and commitment that volunteers demonstrate each and every week across our county, clubs and leagues would simply not exist and communities would miss out on the physical and mental health benefits that come from playing football.

A football club or league is about more than just the players on the pitch. It takes an army of dedicated volunteers to make football happen, giving up their time so that others have the opportunity to enjoy playing the game and helping to create the next generation of sporting stars.

It's often the case that a few people at a club do a lot of the work behind the scenes, so new volunteers will usually be more than welcome. There are lots of different roles that need to be done, so you don't even need to know all about the game to be a real help.

Safeguarding is Everyone's Responsibility!

Keeping Football Safe and Enjoyable

Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone. This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.
