Share our How-to section in Volunteers’ Week

We’ve launched a free online resource to help grow sports clubs and groups. Check out our How-to for guides, top tips and expert advice.

We hope you’re all having a fantastic Volunteers’ Week↑ – the annual campaign that encourages all of us working with volunteers to take time out to thank them and recognise the amazing contribution they make.

Volunteers’ Week might turn 31 this year but doing recognition well is a timeless lesson. It’s one of the main learning points we took from London 2012; again and again Games Makers told us that a simple thank you is by far the best reward they could receive.

How-to – your grassroots resource


We’re launching How-to – a simple, free, online resource that will help grow grassroots sports clubs and groups across the country.

Recently, we asked community sports groups across the UK what they wanted to help build their clubs. The response? How-to – a unique resource that provides how-to guides, advice, hints and practical tips from clubs, for clubs!

From finding new volunteers and promoting your club to managing club finances, How-to has it covered. You can also find additional support from Sport England’s Club Matters↑ – a one stop shop for sports clubs. Club Matters provides free, convenient, practical resources to help you develop and run a sustainable club.

Join In’s CEO Rebecca Birkbeck said, “We work with thousands of grassroots sports groups every day, but it’s the volunteers within the clubs who are donating their time and building the clubs from within. We wanted to showcase these remarkable volunteers and use their success stories to inspire others looking for first hand advice and ideas.”
