Volunteer Opportunities

Find the many volunteering opportunities throughout East Lothian


Within East Lothian, we have a variety of different ways in which you can get involved through Volunteering. Whether you just want to get involved in the local community or if your looking to start a carreer in sport, we have the right opportunity for you

Sports clubs, Active Schools and the Sports development team all rely on volunteers to continue to provide high quality affordable activity. From making tea, coaching a team or using your business skills to help run a club there are many ways you can get involved. Below are some examples of ways you can volunteer within each of our teams across the service;

Lead/Assistant Coach

Active East Lothian are always looking for leaders and assistant coaches to help enhance our exsisting opportunities for children and adults to get Active, or even create new opportunities for the people of East Lothian. No training is necessary, as we will put you through any relevant/appropriate training you require.

Office Based Volunteering

We are always looking to develop our programmes in any way possible, and if you have a specific talent/ set of skills you think we could make the most of, then don’t hesitate to get in touch. Some examples of Volunteering could be roles such as, a Social Media Assistant, Website Developer or even someone who would like to conduct a Consultation amongst children, parents, coaches to really make the most of our programme.

Sports Clubs Helpers

Everyone knows most sports clubs around the country are based are the sports aspect…but what about the hospitality before during and after the game for players and spectators? Sports Clubs in the area could really use anyone to Volunteer their time to help make teas and coffees, help out with maintaining sports equipment and strips, really any form of “behind the scenes” work which often goes unnoticed but is an integral part of what brings our Community together

All of these Volunteering roles can be as little or as often as you like. Throughout East Lothian, we have some Volunteers contributing 3-4 hours a week, but also some who just attend 2-3 events throughout the year. All of these Volunteers are as important as each other, as without our Volunteers…none of our opportunities would be in existence!

If you can think of any other way you can Volunteer with us, then feel free to let us know. We are always looking for new ways to help people get involved!

We are currently working on a system to provide real time opportunities on our website. Until then if you are interested in volunteering please fill in our application form below and someone will be in touch shortly.
